From the pictures I saw it looks like the port is soldered to the board. It should be replaceable it just may require some soldering!

Thank you for your answer. You have given me hope. I think I can fix this puppy!

Do you know how to open the Kindle without destruction? And where does one get the replacement part? Radio Shack?

The Kindle is a generation 2 version.
