Same thing happened to me. what you need is called the USB PLUG. i
bought 5 of them from a place called DIGIKEY (www.digikey.com) and here
is a link straight to the page you need
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

please remove the covers carefully and check the soldering points of metallic parts and pen drive pcb some times the middle two pins are broken.
if yes you can re solder it with soldering iron and relevant soldering aids.or ask someone to do so.
then clean the printed circuit board with electronic contact cleaner.
most of the time i found the pen drives with broken pins.
You will either need to connect the front pannel connector on the several pin located on the motherboard or you can short circuit this by using a pen or screw driver and contact the 2 red pins (on the front pannel connector)
Don't try and charge the battery directly, as it is a lithium battery it can explode if not charged correctly. You can try connecting (soldering) wires to the circuit board where the socket was connected to feed in 5V from the power adaptor or USB lead.
I was able to get one of these working that had a dead pen. I reset the
pen (insert a pin in the side), and plugged it into a USB port on my
computer. I then opened the smartglobe 3 software and it updated the
pen. A couple times it failed to format the pen.
I had to switch the pen to another usb port and then it finally
formatted and downloaded all of the info to it. It took a looooong time
to update. Then it said it was updating the Clock. It then told me to
disconnect the pen, but... I was wary of this because most usb devices
require some kind of dismounting before you unplug something.
So instead of disconnecting the pen when it said to, I quit the
smartglobe software and shut down the computer, without ever unplugging
the pen. Once the computer was off I finally unplugged the pen from the
usb cable. I turned off the pen and turned it back on. It then worked,
(a guy came on and said something)! I think maybe there isn't a way to
"eject" the pen properly, so shutting down might (big emphasis on might)
allow the usb connection to disconnect successfully without corrupting
the flash memory of the pen. Or I just got really lucky. Either way I'm
happy! (And not about to update it again I might add).
solution.. 1) Check The USB Port for Damaged, Bend Or Broken Pins. 2) Check The Pen Drive For Physical Damage. 3) Try The Pen Drive In another USB Port. (i.e. if u r using the pen drive in the FRONT PANEL USB PORT than try it in BACK PANEL USB PORT) 4) Try The Pen Drive In Another System. 5) Tye Another Pen Drive. 6) If All Above Is Fine Then Format The PEN DRIVE. 7) Try The PEN DRIVE now. 8) Is Issue Still Persists Then.. 9) Uninstall the CHIPSET/MOTHERBOARD DRIVER COMPLETELY and then clear %temp% & prefetch files and Restart Your System. 10) Install The Latest CHIPSET/MOTHERBOARD DRIVER and ANY AVAILABLE FIRMWARE for the motherboard..
You need to re-solder the circuit board that contains the STK
convergence modules. They're on the center circuit board attached to an
aluminum heat sink that's about 8" long and 6" tall, about dead center
in the circuit board. You may be able to recreate the problem (hour
glass effect) by gently moving the heat sink (which the modules are
connected to). This gives the hour glass effect on the picture and the
advanced convergence screen. This is an indication that the modules
pins aren't solidly connected (meaning soldered) properly. Remove the
circuit board and clean the old solder off & resolder the modules
pins to the circuit board reconnected the board and then retest by
again pushing on the heat sink. This is a caused by a minimum
effort (a.k.a. minimum cost) solder job, probably done in some 3rd
world sweat shop. The "factory" job was good enough for 3-4 years but
the heat (and these modules do create a lot of heat) and stress created
from repeated use eventually takes it's toll, weakens the pin
connections and our problem occurs. take the appropriate cautions
working around the high voltage of the set & use a non-conduting
piece of wood to push the heat sink when we doing tests. Best of
luck, hope ya fix it.
I think maybe one of the battery connections are damaged if so try to straighten them with a very thin long nose pliers .The other possbility could be that you have a faulty circuit board .Service it at sony or hopefully youve bought an original battery
