How do I fix the loose USB connection port?

History

The HD can no longer connect to the computer. It had a loose USB port, which by jiggling would eventually connect. Now, no amount of jiggling allows it ti connect. It powers up fine. When I try insert the USB cable into the port it falls in.

this is the disassembly you could use to get to the USB port. If you are ok at soldering then I'd try resoldering the legs to the motherboard-with time and putting the cord in and out something has wobbled free and contact is broken. Obviously try this without the hard drive attached to the board...

I have made my posting clearer. It is a great site but not for my drive.
