Yea I did same to my Kodak digital camera. You may find someone who can fix it - its just a small little part to replace.
But in my case, I went a camera repair place where they gave me the "i dunno" look & said it could take weeks cost this much or that much.
Anyway, I discovered that by wrapping electrical tape around the lithium battery I could wedge the battery in so that I could use the camera, yippee. And that worked great until the entire camera had a heart attack & died.

This would depend a lot on what camera you have.
Typically, the ports are found behind plastic doors or rubber seals on the edge or the back or bottom of the camera. Sometime, they are within the battery compartment.
Unfortunately, you can't get new spares. Your camera is an obsolete model and Sony (took over Konica Minolta) no longer support the model nor do they retain spare parts.
Your only option is to look on auction websites for a broken example, or to even ask on your local FreeCycle and Freegle groups. But if you do buy a spares donor make sure to ask whether the part you need is functional and present. After taking what you need you can try reselling what's left. I often find that by doing so I get virtually free spare parts.
