@estelle1379 ,

Have you tried a different known working compatible charger or charger cable or connecting the phone to a computer's USB port to see if it gives an indication that it is charging at all?

What have you tried?

Hi Linda

If you’re not getting any response, it could be many different problems. First check for lint/dust/dirt stuck in the charging port that prevents the charging cable from making a good connection. Cleaning this out will fix your issue in many cases…

If you plan to replace the battery, I recommend getting a replacement charging port/USB board as well. That way you can diagnose all power issues at once.

If you are not experienced with opening phones, it is a good idea to get a replacement screen as well in case it is damaged during disassembly (return it if you don’t use it!)

Hey Linda,

Hopefully you’re not having that problem anymore. I recently stumbled upon the same thing with my google pixel two. I was wary over replacing the piece myself because I felt there was an alternate solution that would get the problem done, and I was right!

The easiest thing for you to do would be to grab a thin object, I used a zip tie, and dip it in alcohol, isopropyl is preferable, and just keep on trying to wedge out dirt from the charging port. I spent about 30 minutes on my phone and at first only tiny pieces came off, but as I kept on wedging even bigger pieces came out. Once I connected my charger into the charging port it actually went all the way inside! (only 3/4 of the charger fit). And now it’s working good as new, hopefully this makes your way and you can fix your phone!!
