    Well my Playbook is off for possible repair. It definitely is a bad port. So I expect them to refuse to fix it with out a charge. I believe they want to charge $199 to fix it.

    Is there a company that could fix it. How much do you think it will cost?
    My feelings is I should just buy a new one. What do you think?

    Is there a company that could fix it?

    Buy a new one and get the 64g PlayBook the extra space is nice. Should be able to get it for under $300.

    Get a rapid charger, or dock as these use the alternative connection for charging (much more reliable)

    Transfer your files with wireless, the usb port on playbooks is crap - if you get it fixed Im pretty sure it would break again soon.

    Some folks have suggested using 3rd party (kind of local) cell phone repair shops or laptop shops. But you may need a part or parts if it is not a simple solder fix.
