Something odd happened the other day, just after I ebay'd for another TC-970... While walking from the car to the house, I spit & the wind caught it--as the wind does with things--and threw it right at my tablet's carrying-case, right near the data-port! Thankfully, none had actually gotten at the data-port... but it did hit the unit's case right near it, and now it won't take or register a charge! I've tried using a lower amperage charger... like the ones sold for automotive 12vdc outlets/cigarette lighter sockets... and it worked briefly, but it hasn't since. I'm at my wits-end here, having no idea how to replace the port--which I ordered moments ago--transfer all my info to the new one--if I need to--or if I just need a new sync-cable, which I also just ordered. Any answers to all these questions would be handy, as I originally intended to "gift" the second one & now I'm gonna have two on my hands... with all the parts needed to repair the first one.
