went to plug my usb cable into my well taken care of pod hd 500, and one of the end in there for the wire, is broken. this is my first issue with it, and would like to know if anyone else has had this problem, there seems to be something missing from that hole. Next question would be, what can I do about it. not going to be able to edit tones till i get it fixed.

Didn't have this issue (thanks God).You can sent it for repair to the shop you bought it...Alternatively, you can edit the fx and parameters on the hd hardware, especially if you are not using the usb for recording.
If it's under guarantee, sent it back and grab a new, or get your money back.

I suggest you take your HD500 in to an authorized Line 6 service centre:
Hopefully it is still under warranty. This was a surprisingly expensive non-warranty repair for me (same thing happened) but was not something I felt comfortable attempting to do myself. In most cases it is not a simple matter of replacing the jack/connector; there is also an internal chip that usually needs replacement.
While the fix can be expensive, the device is much less useful without a working usb connection.The problem is not just using the editor or not being able to record directly, it also means you can no longer update firmware or even import new presets.

My USB port has broken too, it was a surprise considering the fact i take a good care of my HD 500, in any case i have done a video showing the solution.
Be advised, you must change the USB Controller chip as well.

(just my experience, not sure if it was supposed to be running in fast forward.)
the video was nice, it was a racecar ride through ripping an hd500 apart and replacing the port and chip. that being said, after watching whole thing, i am now motion sick, next time a caveat would be a nice addition to the link.
on a side note, i personally like to watch the whole thing in real time, so it might just be my pc being mental today causing it to be running fast.
