Question about Tablets & eReaders
I need to charge my tablet but the charging cord is loose so I need a USB charging cord to charge it.
SOURCE: Wont charge or keep a charge
First off, a google search will show you several companies out there that will replace the cells in your existing battery for around $70. Not bad. However, you mentioned that positioning of the plug can get it to work. The solder joints can become broken from the board, and the small plug in jack will get loose after a year or two of plugging in to it.
You can get a replacement plug at fry's electronics, or many online stores. If you need a service manual, or driver disk set, you can get them at mpcdrivers.com

I had the same problem with my vizio tablet. The port came loose after the wife and kids kept playing with it. The tablet would not charge anymore. What I had to do was open the tablet and check if the little pins that connect the Micro USB port were still soldered on the circuit board. Mine were broken off so I had to replace the whole port. I couldnt even find the OEM replacement part so I had to buy a Mico USB (style B) port off ebay and made it work.
