I get "Charging is not supported by this device" w/nothing attached
Contaminated my iPhone 3GS with a mixture of oil, sugar, soy sauce. (Korean BBQ Marinade)
Not much but just enough to cause the message "Charging is not supported by this device" when ever I wake the phone from sleep.
Everything seems to work and it will charge. The message goes away when the docking cable is attached.
What do I do as the Apple "Genius" told me I'm sol unless I want to pay full freight on a new phone.
here is the guide to get the logicboard out
my magic glass orb told me that there is a shorted connection around the dock connector.
serious - the fluid has shorted something in the charging part of the phone, it ould be that is outside on the contacts of the dock connector - look closely, use rubbing alcohol and a soft brush to clean that area carefully - if there is nothing on the outside, it's inside the phone - but i'm pretty shure about the dock connector
if you see something slightly white/greenish (almost likt mold) - thats it - if you are lukcy - you don't have to replace anything - but be careful whith the disassembling
