I'm sorry to say but just about every charger port on cell phones these is hard wired to the circuit board, they are made that way so that you just buy another phone. couple months ago I had the exact same problem with my motorola V710 a nice little phone, I had it for 2 years got it used on Ebay earlier this year the charger port started to go, so I ignored it in the hopes that it was just the adapter, but I soon enough figured out it was the port and just a couple months ago it got to the point where it would not charge unless I held the adapter in place, so I said that's it I"m openingit up and soldering the connection, easier said then done! Not only that but I tore the LCD cable, basically I trashed the phone and had to replace it. If you don't mind the time grief and likelihood that you will have to replace it if anything else breaks then go for it, otherwise replace it because it's just too expensive to have fixed out of warranty. That's my 2 cents worth.

Good Luck

LG Neon won't charge. It's not the charger.


First turn off the phone remove the battery and put it back in, then try to charge it, make sure the charger is properly inserted in the phones charging port.

Try out the charger on another phone to confirm if it is still working. Then you try another charger on the phone to confirm if the phone is faulty. If the charger does not work, then the problem is from the phones charging port.

To repair that, have the phone opened then either resolder the carging port to the main panel or you replace the charging port with a new one.

For the main time, you can use a universal charger, but that will require you to have an extra battery so your phone will not be off when charging the battery.

Take care and good luck

Before you conclude that its the charging port i think you need to test another compartible charger and see if it works or you could open your phone with a phone screwdriver and dust the charging port and try it if it works.If it doesn't work then you would need to replace the charging port.Temporarily you can use a desktop charger to charge your batterywhile the port is being replace.

you have done well in troubleshooting it. if you have tried another charger on it and its not charging, then you have to replace the charging port. if you are good opening phones, then replacing the charging port will not be a problem. the chrging port is usually not screwed, it is just fixed to the board by contacts. look for the replacement part and change it. other wise, take it to a phone technician with the new charging port and replace it. good luck!

I have a LG AX8600 and have to move the charger plug in till it will charge and if it doesnt sit in the right postion it will not charge, tried different charger and this is a brand new phone, traded in...

I have seen this with multiple phones, the problems can be in a couple places. Even with a new phone the charger port can be easily damaged, also your chargers (I know you have tried more than one) could have a couple problems; wrong size, short in power cord for charger, and damaged/ worn contact points. I suggest you take your phone to your local provider and see if the have the same problem when the plug the phone in to their own charger, if they do it is probably a charger port problem if they don't see the same problem you might just need a new battery charger. I know this seems redundant but it has to be one or the other. hope this helps :)
