I have Samsung tablet SM-T710 model and the charging port is damaged in a way that am unable to insert the charging cable.

Can the charging port changed? if so, where and also, is this a do it yourself effort?

Link: Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0" SM-T710

Looks like the front face of the tablet is bonded and I can't pry it open.

Any suggestions?

Check out ifixit.com for some ideas. These fixes vary widely by model and brand. Might be cheaper to just replace.

Scroll down past the item for sale. Shows how to remove the back of the unit.

Search youtube for videos on this tablet. Like Big Bear says it may be cheaper (and easier) to buy another. I have opened a Tab 2 before to change the battery. If you are good with electronics and have a lot of patience you can do it. As for parts I would look on ebay for the best deals.

The connector no doubt solders to a circuit board. Everyone I've seen does at least. If you've done soldering on circuitboards with small traces before, and you have the proper gear - temperature regulated soldering iron, and a selection of tips (since you won't know what tip will work best until you're in there), then OK. Otherwise????

OTOH, if your last soldering experience was with a weller soldering gun (100 watts or so?), then good luck.

Wrong part.

This is what is needed to do the repair.

As I stated in my post that was only to show how to get the back off. The rest is not applicable.
