I found the charger port on eBay from a US seller.

I took the phone apart to get a close look at the connector. Going to be a challenge for me as this is some fine soldering.

I have a 15 watt solderer. It has a fairly thin tip but seems big for the job. What size of tip is best?

I did order one of the plugs and soldered it in and the phone charging does not work. It may have been a poor solder job or something else got shorted in one of the internal circuits. The phone works fine but the battery needs to be charged externally and switched every day or two.

You can get the plug replaced by a shop but one local phone store quoted me a hundred bucks, more than the phone is worth.

If the mini plug in the phone is what is broken then nothing else you plug into it will work. You certainly can try it it and wiggle it around a bit.

In hindsight, I believe I could have saved my plug from going bad. It did not happen overnight and it did not occur to me to check the inside of the plug and check for possible bending of the connectors inside and straighten them up a bit. I did mess with the cable ends a lot, compressing them and such to make a better connection which worked a little but I think it messed up the internal connectors more. Check those internal connectors to be straight and that might help.

its not fully broken.

I can still active sync and charge my phone, and for that I am thankful

However, when I plug in my headset jack I cannot listen to music from it

Get a BT headset solve all your problems if works for sync & charging, i picked up mine for 25 and there cans will also prove far more functional

VERY good news it still charges and syncs. What has happened is some of the connectors inside the plug are going bad or the cable that plugs the headphone into the phone plug is bad. If it is a bad cable no big deal. If it is pins inside the plug, you should be worried.

You can get music from the device via BT as suggested. But you will still be making frequent connections for battery charge and maybe synch too.

The HTC plug is a special mini-usb configuration and if the plug is the source of the problem I would seriously consider getting rid of it asap while it still works except for sound.

The plug might not get worse but odds are it will and then you are screwed, speaking from experience.

Good luck.

What does the complete mainboard cost? Perhaps that's better than replacing the kaiser with another one or trying to fix that ^^

I did the same thing. Lucky for me I was able to bend the pins back with a knife. I felt horrible after that but I got lucky.
