External flash connector cover tore socket off?

Bummer. I have had my OM-D E-M1 for about 6 months, bought it lightly used on ebay. Never took the external flash cover off. A few days ago, when I went to turn the cover off, it was stuck. So I put on a rubber glove to get a better grip, and it did turn.

Unfortunately, the cover had remained stuck, and the socket itself had turned! As a result, the thin connection from the socket to the camera interior was broken. The camera continued to work briefly, but there was something loose inside, and soon afterwards it ceased functioning.

So... what can I do to get this repaired? Does anyone here have any experience with this problem? Thanks!
