Update: Looks like that's fixed it, for the moment.[^]
It hadn't. So ... I bit the bullet and got a replacement part.
It's the micro USB connector, the PCB that's located on,, the headphone connector and its mounted to, a flexi PCB between them, and a dinky little 22pin, 0.5mm spacing, locking ribbon connector which attaches it to the main board.
All you have to do is open the tablet, disconnect the battery, undo three screws, move the speakers out of the way, undo five more screws, open the latch, remove the connector PCB(s), fit the new one, close the latch, replace the screws, replace the speakers, replace the three screws that hold that, reconnect the battery, and push the back back on.
Tools: tiny phillips screwdriver, tiny flat head screwdriver (for the latch), plastic thing what takes the back off.

Total time: under ten minutes.
Total cost? £3.50 for the bit, £1 for the plastic thing what takes the back off (which is probably not reusable, they are cheap plastic). Screwdrivers I have in abundance.

Full charge from empty in a couple of hours (using my 2A charger).
That'll do, that'll do ... Laugh | :laugh:
