I have managed to replace the charging port but now it shows Charging Port Temperatures Abnormalities Reminder which is loud and annoying to see every time. I also see that one of my sensors in the cpu-z program (thermal sensor pa_therm0) hitting a constant 75-84 degree centigrade and another sensor (chg_temp) hitting 65 constantly. Any help in regards to this manner?
