Default Problem with the USB port on my FZ28

I know this is an older camera, but she still works beautifully for me. I'm having a problem with the USB port though. It doesn't work well, only sporadically, and best if I'm holding the cord just right. I replaced the cord with a new one, so I know it's the port in question and not the cable. Anyone else had this problem before? I'm wondering if it's an easy fix, one worth having fixed and doesn't cost an arm and leg.

G'day Katina

If you are having a few problems with the camera-to-computer USB connection - and it fails, maybe the cheapest solution is a card-reader to USB connection ... all of $15 maybe ... just slot the SD card into the reader and bypass the camera-to-computer connections completely

Hope this helps

Same idea as Ozzie's popped into my mind. Although I do not have a solution to fix the usb-port issue. The USB reader can even be found for 1 pound. And don't be afraid of taking the SD card out, I have been doing it for many years sometimes multiple times a day and never has anything gone wrong.
