Probably no need to REPLACE the jack. Just push the little indented tabs in a fraction of a millimeter and it will make good contact again. I just did this with mine and it works perfectly now after having been a royal PITA for over a year.

Will this work if I bought a charger that either charges inside the tip connected to the prong, or thru the outer side of the plug. I used the wrong setting and now I only see the green robot on his side. It won't boot
