Alfonso Navarro, this depends on your skill level. Check the teardown on here. you can see that the USB port is actually pretty easy to locate on the logic board, but it is solder onto it. So two obstacles, first you will have to find a replacement, second you will have to de-solder the old one and re-solder the new one. Not an impossible repair, but it does require patience and some practice. You could try mouser.com or digikey.com for a replacement part. Check here for moreinfo about the micro USB. Hope this helps, good luck
