Default [Q] HTC One Charging Port Damaged

Hi Guys

So I bought an HTC one, international version two months back from eBay India. (It has no warranty)
Recently, the charging port on the device has malfunctioned. HTC won't replace it for obvious reasons
and my seller has no hardware warranty. Is there a way in which I can get it repaired/replaced.
All suggestions are welcome (Even do-it-yourself ones).

Thanks

Im sure there are many hardware repair stores in India. Locate one nd give it fr repair. However, im sure that it will b quite expensive nd may require a motherboard replacement.
Which city do u live in ??

I live in New Delhi. Expensive as in 1000 - 2000 Rs, or even more?

That actually depends on how bad the problem actually is. If the full motherboard needs to be replaced, then it will cost u much more than 5000 INR. So i wud suggest that u show it to a repair shop nd ask the quotation before actually asking them to do it.

However, im baffled as to why HTC wont do it themselves. If there's no warranty, it won't be done fr free. But i live in Dubai nd here HTC outsources their hardware services to another company, who does all kinds of repairs.

Keep this in mind, HTC has listed quite a few service centres in Delhi on their website
http://www.htc.com/in/support/service-center.html

Check wat they have to say. Ive got many devices repaired by these local hardware technicians in Mumbai. I dont think IT support is any worse in New Delhi

Actually, i did go the HTc center, they said there was a problem with the micro USB alone, but as this was an international version, they didnt have the parts for it.

Ur only other option would be to go to a local hardware technician.
