2WIRE 2701HG-B Power Slot Broken??

I have a problem to deal with the inside of it. I accidentally dropped the modem when I was walking by my sister, and she bumped into me. It went flying, and the power cord goes in COMPLETELY. I need to know if it's possible to get the power on the modem back up and working by the inside wires? I'm having a lot of trouble and I need the internet for research for college. I need to know how to fix it on my own, and as soon as possible! It's very important that I get it. It's just the power cord - it's like the slot that it goes in is completely gone.

Please help!
Thanks!

Might be easier to go to Best Buy and get a new modem...

Might be cheaper to go to a local thrift store (make sure the power supply powers up the unit). You should be able to pick up a used 2wire 2701hgb with power supply for much less than $15-$20.

I used to work for AT&T tech support and we handled 2wire modem. Considering this is a 2701HG modem. I believe that there is no more warranty for this modem. I suggest you buy one at bestbuy or on ebay.
