The charger connection at bottom of phone is dented
The copper plate thingie at the bottom of the phone, where the charger connects, is dented a bit, which means the charger's metal bit don't connect with the metal bit of the phone, therefore it doesnt charge.
is it possible to have it fixed?and how much on average would someone charge to fix it?

The charge ports do break loose. If you know somebody who knows how to solder very well they can reattach it. Some times the copper PC board traces pull up with the legs of the mini USB port and need to be connected with some fine wire. This should be no problem for a decent electronice tech. Your other option is to find another phone in which to charge the battery. The battery is a BR50 and I charge them off the phone with two tiny alligator clips attached to the leads of an old charger. These are about 800mAh so a dead battery will take an hour or so to charge. The voltage of a fully charged 3.7 Volt Lithium Ion battery under no load should be about 4.05 volts. You can check with a volt meter. Removing the main board to access the charge port will require a T5 (Torx bit) screwdriver. Lift off the battery cover pry the plastic piece off the bottom and remove the screws. Then carefully pry the two flex cable connectors off from under the board. Lift it out and resolder the charge port. Repost if you are having any troubles.
It may be due to power surge happening when you remove your charger from phone. 1.Try changing your power adapter 2. Switch off the power adapter first before removing the charger connection from your phone. 3. Remove the battery and clean the copper terminals with a cloth 4. If none of these idea works, then give a try my restoring your mobile to factory settings.
Hi. these situations are mostly caused by a bent or broken copper prong that is located within the input charger port that is inside the phone housing.
When you insert the charge cord into the input port, there are copper prongs that will have to connect to each other and , this contact point will transfer the necessarycurrent to the cell for a proper charge.
If the prongs are damage in any way due to broken copper or, bent copper prongs, this will prevent the necessary current from flowing to the cell.
Most remedies are crude like using a tooth pick or paper clip to straighten out the prongs inside the port. these methods do more harm than good and i recommend sending this phone in for a input port transplant. the manufacture or local repair depot is the best repair solution for this situation.
There is one thing that i would do before sending it to the repair depot. try using a completely different battery cell. if you purchase a new battery and the charger continues to not charge, this will confirm the input port failure.
the connection between the phone and the adapter are copper and the get corroded take a small pin and scratch away the green corrossion and that should solve your problem. the cause is condensation. good luck
Remove the back housing on the bottom half of the phone if the battery is in there then remove the battery aswell
then at the bottom of the area where the battery sat there should be a small metal plate with 6 or so little copper nobs underneath it.
slide the sim between the plate and the copper nobs making sure the cut off corner of the sim locates in the blanked corner of the slot.
Also make sure the copper face of the sim is what will be touching the copper nobs
