Here is a link which shows how to replace the battery in your tablet. I realize that this is not your problem but the video is useful in that it shows how to open your tablet so that you can access the charging port, which in this tablet is actually on a plug-in flex cable module.

At 2:52 minutes into the video the charging port flex cable is visible just below the orange connector and the battery connector (red/blue wires) You get a better view of it as the video goes on.

Here is a link to the replacement part from just one supplier just to let you see what it looks like.

Note: It may be prudent to isolate the battery from the systemboard by disconnecting the battery connector. You shouldn't have to remove the battery itself, just gently lift the connector.This will prevent any problems occurring if you happen to accidentally touch something you shouldn't when removing the charging port screws etc. Don't forget to replace the battery connector when you are finished and before you go to reassemble the tablet.

Hopefully this is of some help.
