Practika digit mcamera problem

in May 2007 I purchesed a Practika digital camera so slightly out of warranty, today I took a photo, using the camera not the memory card unfortunately, when trying to put in the USB connector into the camera, the connection on the camera has been pushed right in so I contacted Practika for advice and have received an unhelpful email stating the following "It sounds as though you've broken it!", I know I am not a genius but I had gathered that, the problem is I need the photo taken today from the camera, anybody any ideas on what I can do, all help and advice gratefully accepted.

Yes, the lenses were re-badged Japanese products and of excellent performance.

I eventually gave the complete outfit to my best mate and bought a Nikon SLR body and Tamron lens.

My Nikon F401 and remarkably compact Tamron AF 28-200mm zoom will stand up to most situations...:-)

The Tamron covered the same range as the two Practika lenses, whilst still being a top class optical device.

Still have the Nikon and Tamron, plus my 43-year-old Ashai Pentax Spotmatic.

yesterday received the camera back from praktica with a note recomending a repair agent, why did they not tell me of this before I sent them the camera, they did include a new usb cable, so have sent it to agents to see what they say

All the shunting back and forth costs and the final repair bill- if indeed it proves to be repairable[my guess- not] will tot up well on the way to a new camera with this weeks specifications.
