Introduction

If the battery fails to charge on the Black and Decker model LDX172C cordless drill, it is likely that the charge port may be defective. The charge port can be replaced relatively easily in approximately 40 minutes with only basic tools, such as a phillips screwdriver set and a basic soldering iron. This guide will outline the steps necessary to complete the replacement.
