Unhappy iBook G3 Charger Port Busted

I have a 2001 12.1 inch iBook G3 dual USB. I recently found out that the Charger Port has busted, and will no longer take a charge from my charging cord . I have looked online for a replacement, but so far have found nothing. I was wondering if anyone knew a good online source that may have a replacement.

Cheers,
Old Henry

You can get a DC-in board for your iBook on eBay or ifixit.com. It's a simple repair.

Edit: You can get a free repair manual on ifixit.

Now I would mark this as resolved now, but until I can make sure that part is going to fix the problem, I'm going to keep it open
