LG G3 cant charge unless I have cable at a specific position

Hi All,

My LG G3 is about 2 years old now and it doesn't charge all the time with any cable unless I position the phone/cable connector at a very specific position. I've tried charging a different Android phone with the same cable and it may charge but doesn't always charge the G3 unless I wiggle the connector till it charges. Maybe the charging port in the phone is worn out and needs to be fixed? If so are there instructions on how to do so?

Thank you.

Is this a good question?

Ok thanks. BTW had a look inside with a flashlight and it seems the port is corroded. Will get it replaced. Thanks for your feedback,


Note that the charger port is soldered onto the board so it is not easily DIY replaceable.

That definently is a charge port issue. Get a needle or something and get out any debris in the port. If that doesn't work, you will have to replace it.
