Are you referring to the micro USB connector in the tablet?

If so, as it is a SMD (Surface Mounted Device) type micro USB connector, you will need the tools and skills required to unsolder and solder SMD devices.

If the connector is just loose and is still inside the tablet then perhaps it can just be re-terminated. If it is actually missing then a new one will have to be obtained.

Here is a link to the ifixit repair guide on how to remove the motherboard in your tablet.

This will give access to the charge port which is mounted on it.

Here is an image taken from the guide. I have highlighted where the charge port is so that you can identify it if you wish to do the repair yourself.

Here is a link to just one supplier of the part. It is not a recommendation to use the seller. It is shown just to give an idea of the cost of the part. There are others that may suit you better. Just search for Asus MeMo Pad HD 7 usb connector

This is not a job for novices. You can cause more damage than you are trying to fix if you don't know what you are doing.

I recommend that you contact a reputable, professional mobile phone repair service and ask for a quote to repair the charge port.
