usb c port not working in any way at all
ive had a pixel 7 pro since launch pretty much (like a month after launch) and ive had no real problems with it until a few days ago
since the 16th of may, my charging port has been getting intermittent
fast forward to last night, any slight disturbance of the charging cable would cause it to lose contact and stop charging
i also use the google usb c earphones which have been virtually impossible to use because of this, if you so much as breathe on the cable, it would lose contact
ive tried using an air compresser to get dust out, and a toothpick to no avail
if anything, these attempts have made it worse
im really concerned about this since i dont have the money to get this fixed (either myself or at a shop), even if i did have money i dont trust myself to not damage the device when opening it, and none of the repair shops near me are trustworthy
and to add to that, i need this fixed by monday since i take buses to and from college and my bus pass is an app on my phone
does anyone have advice here?
oh and another thing i want to ask while im here, nothing too major
when tilting my phone in any capacity, i hear something rattling around - does anyone know what this is? (im guessing its maybe a bracket thats somehow come loose from my many bus rides since i got it)
Is this a good question?
