The charger pin has become detached

The charger pin has broken off and sits inside the external charger, my computer no longer charges, i've been informed to repair this it will have to have something done to the motherboard and i've been quoted £99. is this reasonable?

what would be the steps to doing this myself at home?

would i need to purchase a new pin/whole part/motherboard?

really need your help!!!

What you have been told is correct. The charger adapter is an integral / integrated part of the mother borad.. This is something that can not be reasonably fixed / repaired, only replaced, unless you had access to the manufacturers parts suppliers. You might contact the manufacturer, and price out their repair costs. Also, you may find some hobbyist that could cobble togeather a fix to solder wires, and provide a way to get it to charge, but it would not be as convenient as the OEM Design.. I would use the manufacturers quote on repair / replacement as a pricing guide..

Sometimes you can find used laptops on eBay or similar that would be less than the repair costs.

Where the charger plugs into the tablet has become dislodged.


Need to open the casing and re-solder the power plug. Hopefully, no pcb traces are broken but it can be repaired with a little patience. If unit is out of warranty, go to the local cell phone repair shop, they can easily do this for you.

PLT7223G power pin broken


Try charging it with the USB cable from the computer. It could be your charger pin is faulty. This happens from frequent in and out charging. The pins on the charger tip get worn out. If it charges with the USB cable then get a new charger.Charging from the computer is slower but it works.

Maybe it's the charger or dc jack that was broken. Just test with a known working adapter connected, see if it charges, if yes, then your charger is broken, while if not, then you have to resoldered your dc power jack.

This is a common complaint of the wire shorting inside, please go to my tips page so that this particular complaint was reviewed with some tips.
The short within the wire cuts off the adaptor votlage as it is in protect mode-- not a failure of the adaptor. so have the wire **** off and connected or use a new pin at the end.

The inside part of my phone's charging area broke. so how can i charge it


there are duplicate chargers available from china where the battery is charged externally, by taking the battery out and placing it on the charger. they are aso very cheap. but i am not sure about the availability since i dont know your country or the district. but i you are not interested in charging the battery each time externally, then its better to take the phone to a service center and get it repaired. but it may prove expensive.

My razr v3m always thinks its charging even when i take the charger out it still says charging. and the phone wont stay off it turns right back on and says unauthorized charger


Sounds like the connector for the charger/data cable has become damages, there are tiny pin contacts inside that can get bent or the female port on the phone can become wallowed out. If you have insurance on your phone you can take it back and have it replaced. You might also try some compressed air blown into the connector gently to see if there is something stuck inside.

Check also the charger cable end if you look carefully inside you can see the pins, make sure they aren' bent or pushed in, might have bad charger connector.

Hope this helps

Charger socket broken


That little black thing goes into the charger so without it, or something to replace it, you can not charge, unless you somehow found a way to take out the battery and charge it outside of the ds. I would highly recommend sending it back to Nintendo or something like that.

Hp Photosmart 145 printer charging pin broken


If the pin is pushed inside to one side use a small screwdriver (ones used for watches)  , you can push up underneath the pin and it will become straight enough for you to connect it , other wise you need to open up the camera and desolder the socket and buy another one and solder it , make sure you measure the diameter of it & keep it look on ebay for that connector of that size, if you can take a photo of it and upload it on flickr  and provide a link it might help a bit

T-mobile phone Not Charging


to where are you connecting the charger?
how old is the charger? maybe the cable its broken in the inside... this usually happens at the ends of the cables or if there is a little bump somewhere..
try connecting them and play with them by moving them a little at the ends.... so there will be better a contact..
