If the ports are on a bus board, check that it is seated well.  I have
had boards that would lift when plugging thing in and out, making them
fail to work.  If that is good, check that the supply hasn't died.  The
+5 is used for USB output.  Some boards also have a fuse on the board.
It may have blown.
