    You DO mean pin on the charger, right?
    Or you mean the SOCKET is loose and the pin can wiggle around with the charger attached?

    #1 is easy... get another charger.
    #2 is not so easy... you'd have to disassemble and solder on a replacement.

    Not much help, I know... but...
    :D

    leeb, its not the charger.
    its #2...the pin inside on the tablet. Ya, I hope I can find someone to solder, but in the meantime, I found I had a mini usb (for tablet end) and reg usb on the other end so I am charging thru my desktop. yes its taking a little longer but it works so Im happy..thanx

    Ah... it will charge thru USB... good!
    Takes quite-a-bit longer, but at least it WILL.
    :D
