How can I fix the RCA 7in power port?

My son stuck a mini screwdriver in the power port and now the plug won't go in. Is there a way to replace the port and where can I find the part? Is there a way to charge it with the mini usb?

You should be able to charge it with the mini usb port on the tablet. Just plug it into a regular wall or car charger with your data cable and it should start charging.

Power Cable Popping Out on Versus Chinese Tablet

Versus Tablets (sold mostly in the UK and Ireland until 2014) have some great features (like HDMI out and Bluetooth), but power is a problem. They do not charge through the USB port, but through a 3.5mm barrel jack plug (specs are 5v 2000mA).
The power cable on my Versus Android Tablet keeps popping out (and therefore the tablet won't charge). Lately it got so bad that the plug simply wouldn't go in at all. I did a bit of research and came up with a fix.
There's a small plastic ring at the top of the plug. Take a precision pliers and pull the ring off the plug. BE CAREFUL! - If you damage the plug it simply won't go in at all, and your tablet will be useless.
Without this ring the plug stays in and the tablet charges. It still pops out occasionally, but a lot less than it did before.

NB: I do see some replacement power adapters with these plugs available on eBay and Amazon, so you may be able to try out a replacement power supply too.

How do I plug hdmi into tv?

Make sure that the TV is HDMI compatible first, if not then the only way would be to buy a converter cable. Older TVs won't be able to support HDMI, newer ones should have a port just like the one below:

Wont power on

Hey, my tablet has done this as well at times. I would leave it attempt to jiggle the on and off button if possible to do so. Sometimes the mechanics under it can get stuck or become sticky and this is why its not turning on. Be persistent, took a day one time for mine to turn back on.
