Sorry to hear you’re having trouble, Clark.
This would indicate that there is internal damage and that the port or underlying circuit board has been damaged.
While it could theoretically be fixed, it would not be worthwhile to do so. There are no parts available for these units anymore, and labor alone just to have a tech look at it would cost twice as much as the system is worth.
This is a 2003 model, so it is significantly past its intended service life (many times over, in fact) and would have been expected to fail for other reasons long before now. Simply put, it is not worth any further investment at this point - it has served its life and is best replaced with a new system.
Here is a comparable system that I would recommend: http://amzn.to/1Rxabn6 or http://amzn.to/1UivFv0
