I'm researching the same as the others under Printer USB port Question regarding a broken usb connection. I see that no one answered the question, so I thought maybe they got personal replies. I hope so.
My connection is loose now (not lose or lost) the prongs appear to be bent. I've tried straightening them but it's still a no-go, the printer is reported to still be disconnected from the PC. Any suggestions on replacing the port or fixing it would be appreciated. I truly don't want to have to buy a new printer/scanner.
