Repair service for Creative 3rd Gen Vado

Not sure whether I posted in the right forum but I have an out of warranty Creative 3rd gen Vado that needs to be repaired.

A few days ago I went down to Creative's repair centre and they told me they couldn't repair my Vado as its an old device which they no longer support.

However the nice repairman told me what needs to be repaired; the usb has gotten lose and I need to find someone to resolder the cable back. Other than that the Vado is working ok.

Does anyone know where there's such a service?

This is actually a very simple job. It happens to many electronic devices. The pins are disengaged from the pcb hence need to re-solder. Problem is due to space constraints, you'll need a very high power, thin and sharp solder tip. It will be easier to approach friends with good soldering skills.

If you are going for such services, I believe it should not cost more than $10 (including parts if any).
