How can I easily fix the charging port?

My brother broke my tablet's charging port while he was unplugging it, and now it's really sensitive. I have to have the charger positioned exactly the right way, then I have to prop it up on something (like a pencil), and I have to check on it every 5 minutes to make sure it's still charging. And I found out that its actually losing battery power (last night it had 40%, but now it has 28%). It's really stressing me out and I need to fix it somehow. Is there a simple way to fix it without taking my tablet apart? I know that the problem isn't the charger, because I tried using a brand new one and it still doesn't work. I also can't afford a professional repairman or a new tablet. How can I fix it?

@lolbit there really is no easy fix for it. To repair the charging port, you would have to disassemble your Kindle and remove the motherboard. Then you would have to un-solder the charging port and re-solder a new one. Look at these guides Kindle 7th Generation Repair to see what is involved and if you think you could manage the repair. If not then you can consider sending it to any of the numerous online places that perform this kind or repair.
