Introduction

When the charger is plugged in but the Chromebook doesn't begin charging and the outlet the charger is plugged into works, then the charging port needs to be replaced. This is an easy fix that just requires you to pry up a hinge and pull some cables out that connect the port to the motherboard. This part can be purchased and swapped out.
