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 or mobile device has stopped charging correctly, there are a few things that you can do to troubleshoot and attempt to fix the problem.

Troubleshooting Charging Port Problemschargingportiphone5

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. There’s a chance that you might be using the wrong charger. Some devices have specific power requirements that are not met by other chargers, even when they physically “fit” the charging port on your device. Check to make sure your charging block meets the amount of amps needed.
