@rappin9 ,Rodney, The charging port on a GoPro 3 can be repaired or replaced. This is really not a repair for the inexperienced because the charge port for your device is soldered to the mother board and the heat generated could cause further damage if not very careful. I will post a link to a tear down guide to get you inside the GoPro Hero3 to check the charge port and will also post a link showing what is involved in repairing/replacing a mini USB attached to the board. The last link is to new charge port, which you can also do a search for better pricing perhaps if needed. If not wanting to do the repair yourself have a good computer/cell phone repair shop have a look and estimate repair. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

I got fixed by a company in Montreal, it cost me CAD$80 and they did a great job just in 24 hours working as new again.
