Charging Port Replacement & Repair

Charging Port Problems

Charging ports are easy to damage. Constant connecting and removal of the connector cord can be hard on the port and move, bend, or damage internal components. Sometimes a dropped phone can also cause charging issues. If your phone, mobile device or computer has stopped charging correctly, there are a few things that you can do to troubleshoot and attempt to fix the problem.

Troubleshooting Charging Port Problems

The charging port can be dirty or dusty, blocking the connection. Try using a can of compressed air to remove debris from inside the port. If this does not help, it might need further cleaning. Turn off the device, remove the battery and use a small amount of rubbing alcohol or contact cleaner to clean inside the port very carefully. Use a piece of paper dipped in alcohol – do not spray or dump any liquid into the port itself. This can cause additional damage inside the device.

You also might be using the wrong charger. Are you using the charger that came with the device? Some devices have specific power requirements that are not met by other chargers, even when they physically “fit” the charging port on your device.

Many times the tension clips on the connector at the end of the charging cord just become depressed too far. Slightly raising these tension clips with a sewing needle and a gentle touch could solve the problem.

Where do I start! My son has always been going here for his phone repairs and I needed my screen fixed because I cracked it and couldn't use my phone. Steve not only told me he could fix it for such a great deal that saved me over $150, but that he would have it ready in 1 hour! I was so happy that when I walked in the shop he told me he also gave me a temper screen protector on my phone to protect it from cracking again. I'm so happy that I don't need to eat a new phone or replacement because it's such a hassle. Thank you guys so much for your fast and honest service, you have gained a customer for life and I'll be sending all my family and friends here!
