Unhappy Repair/Replace fried chip for USB in Kindle Fire HD

Hello all,

I've got a 2012 edition of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD (tate) which I love . Unfortunetly, while doing a bit of DIY modding, I was forced to resort to using my handy fastboot cable. I can boot the tablet into fastboot, but upon plugging in my normal USB cable, my laptop tells me that "the connected USB device has malfunctioned, and Windows doesn't recognize it." I posted a thread in my device forum (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2750416), and this was the reply:

Quote:
Ouch, I think I have seen this before, not positive but I,m guessing your fastboot cable shorted the chip in charge of USB related stuff.
My question is: is this something I can fix or replace myself, or am I better off saving for a new tablet? If at all possible, I'd like to try and fix it myself, as it's been a sturdy and reliable little 16 GB tablet, and it's been there through the good and the bad of the past couple of years.

Regard,
