Answer to: iTunes recognizes it while connected, but cannot charge.oldturkey03, Thanks for your reply and the cool picture showing the location of the two fuses. I will try to check those fuses for continuity this weekend with a multimeter. Also I will try to get some 94% or higher isopropyl alcohol to clean the connector. Thanks!
Answer to: iTunes recognizes it while connected, but cannot charge.Thank you, both for responding. Yes, I tried 2 different sync cables, all belkin and one of them was brand new. I wonder if I maybe have to test it with an "official" Apple sync cable w/ it's power adapter (expensive to replace)? Unfortunately, I don't think this is the issue since these cables still work ok with my other ip4 and ip4s. Both charge and sync properly. Been doing some reading and I wonder if this problem is related to a failing "power management" IC. If it does, then I'm done with it, since I don't have the proper equipment (or experience) to unsolder / solder these tiny surface mount ICs.
