Mine is doing the same thing!

I have to press down onto my DSI XL charger in order for it to charge, and then sometimes wrap the cord around my DSI and it sometimes works, or my DSI is f***** up, I don't know.


@xJDogsBabex, just like previously answered; replace your charging port.

Dsiwontcharge, from the way you describe it, it does sound like a bad charging port. It is soldered onto the logic board. Follow this guide to get to the port. Check for any loose/cracked solder connections as well as any damage to the logic board. Replace the port and re-evaluate. Hope this helps, good luck.
