How do you replace the charging port

The charging port has become so loose that the phone will not charge unless you hold the cable tight to the phone. Can the port be replaced?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The micro USB charge port connector can be replaced.

You will need SMD (surface mount device) soldering skills and tools to do the replacement. This is not a job for novice repairers as you can cause more damage than what you had if you don’t know what you’re doing.

There are videos on YouTube showing how to do SMD soldering which may be of some help as a guide what to do. (none for your model phone unfortunately).

Here’s a link to the ifixit Motorola Droid Pro guide(s) which should help in opening the phone to gain access to the charge port.

If this seems to daunting, take the phone to a reputable professional mobile phone repair service and ask for a quote. At least you now know the cost of the part ;-)
