Lightbulb [Q] USB Port not working. Fixable?

Ok, so my USB port on my phone no longer charges and no data can be transferred. I am believing that the contacts have broken off. Has anyone ever replaced the board that the USB port is on? Is there an inexpensive way to fix this?

Try cleaning your port out with a needle/safety pin/paper clip. Scrape it all, it did the trick for me. Hope this helps.
