Can the charging port device be replaced? My grandson damaged his.

EPIK Learning Tablet Model ELT0801 16GB. Can the charging port device be replaced? My grandson damaged his tablet charging port and it needs replacing. Where can I purchase the part for the micro port to install? Computer stores say they don't work on tablets, therefore I need to attempt to replace a new one myself.

Nailah, You could try some local cell phone repair shops as they have to replace that part quite often in cell phones. I could find very little information on your device, I did a good search for a replacement part and also tried to find a disassembly guide with no luck. I did post a couple links for disassembly of a couple tablets that may be similar to yours I hope will help and as far as charge port what you may have to do is when you see the port, you may have to do a search and visually try to match it unless it actually has a # on it to reference. The port may be soldered to the motherboard and will be a hard repair for the inexperienced to fix with out damaging surrounding circuitry. I will post a 4th link just to show you what may be involved in changing the mini USB charge port. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
