First thing to do is take it apart to see whats broken, maybe you're lucky and its just the mini b plug that needs to be resoldered.

I haven't seen one of those devices, but
if the back is closed and the case doesnt split in half held by tabs,
then all that's left is to unscrew the front trim so that the innards
can slid out.

If the front doesnt unscrew then maybe it clips on.

Basically you've just gotta fiddle till you work it out.

ok, take it apart was easier than I imagined. Simply I unscrew the bottom (tightly) and I found the mini usb detached from the circuit.

I don't think those are designed to ever be taken apart. You can probably open it with a sharp utility knife by carefully trimming away some of the plastic around the socket end shown in the picture and then sliding the innards out.
