My daughter's MDA had the same problem. I just opened the phone and soldered the legs on the corners back to the board. You have to bend the pins on the back of the plug down to make contact with the board, before you solder. Place plug back down and line it up with contacts. If done right should work as normal. Hope that helps

You can see a USB like port at the bottom center of the device.
You can charge the battery by:
• Connecting your device directly to an external power source.
• Plugging the device sync cable into the USB port on your PC.
I recent4ly busted my mini-usb port and the phone could no longer take a charge or sync. I took a high res photo of the port and realized one of the pins was bent. I posted all about it with screenshots on what it looked like broken and fixed.
I don't know what you want to hear. If the USB port is broken off, you will either have to get a new phone, or open it up and solder it back on. There are probably 4 "feet" at the corners of the USB port that broke lose from the board and you will need to reattach these. Alternatively, you could find the same phone on eBay that has a broken screen or some other problem that leads you to believe it has a good ESN and a good motherboard. Buy that phone and swap the entire board out. RadioShack has a good tool kit that works with most mobile phones, it's about $15.
Marc1234: sounds like the backlight is out......possibly a software malfunction.....try goign to www.t-mobile.com/wmuprade to reinstall the software....if that doesnt work, contact htc or your service provider....you will need a replacement. if youre out of warrenty, it will be a lost cause....
Guest,: your USB port is broken, if you dont fix it yourself, you will need another phone.
Try to trickle charge it by hooking it up to the USB and then to your computer. Let it charge up a bit then try powering it on or charging it the regular way to charge it even faster.
devices have the ability to "trickle charge" from a USB port on a PC or
Mac. This means that it receives a very small amount of charging from
the USB port, even if it is not connected to its AC charger. If your
device is capable of this function, the charging time will be
significantly longer for a trickle charge (depending on the power
rating of the PC USB port). However, the device may not charge at all
on an unpowered USB hub (or for example off off a keyboard).
