Damaged connector The pins on the slot where the charging cord plugs in are damaged. The phone will no longer connect to the charger. Can this be replaced? If so where would I get the part and the special screwdriver needed to remove the back of the phone?

I went to Ebay and purchased an eternal battery charger for mine because it done the same thing as yours. Of course AT&T told me there was no such thing as an external charger and that they couldnt fix my phone. So I bought a new phone on the spot. Later I checked Ebay just to see if there was an external charger and I found one, bought it and it works great. I use the K1 as a backup phone now since I purchased a new phone.

The K1 is not an easy one to take apart compared to others. I would not recommend it. Plus once it is taken apart you lose the seal. I rarely charge my K1 using my phone. I purchased a unit for under $10 to charge my batteries on. I like to have an extra battery for my cell so I am never without service while it charges.
It will cost you more to get the piece replaced on your K1 than it would to get a seperate charger for a battery. If you need help let me know. I will help you locate a charger if needed.

Bad cable connection

Check the USB cable for damage and dirt, especially at the ends. Then try using the wall charger, as this will provide greater power input than the computer/USB.

Broken charger or USB cord

Try using different chargers to see if you may have a problem with your charger or cord.

Obstructed/bad dock connector

Inspect the 30-pin dock connector at the bottom of the iPhone for dirt, lint, and damaged pins. Clean out the dock connector very carefully with a tooth pick or soft toothbrush. If the dock connector is broken, you will have to replace it.

My e900 wont turn on or charge


most likely your charger port is damaged, if you try another charger and get the same thing- then I am sorry but the phone is finished. warranty does not cover damaged ports, but if you have the insurance it is covered under damage, if its lless than a 30 day old problem. If you replace it with the same phone, discard any chargers you used on the old one.

Wont charge!


1. The charger may be damaged To check if the charger is damaged, use another functioning charger. The charger cable has a tiny wire that easily breaks when used without proper care. If the phone still does not charge with a functioning charger, try next step. 2. The battery may be damaged Change the battery and try charging again. If the phone still does not charge with a functioning battery, try next step. 3. The battery terminals may not connect properly with the battery connectors Check the battery connector to see if the battery and the connector connects well. The phone will indicate charging only when there?s enough power supply from the battery. click here Solution Procedure: If problem is confirmed, adjust the battery connector using tweezers to reach the battery terminal and establish connection. Or try next step. 4. The charging pin may be damaged or does not connect well with the board's interface Check the charging pins to see if they are well connected to the mother board. Sometimes the charging pins wear out or loosens from its connection with the mother board. Solution Procedure: Check if the pin is bent. Straighten the pin using tweezers. Make sure the board interface is also clean otherwise, you will need to clean it by rubbing its surface using an eraser or brushing it with a board solution. Or replace with a new charging pin. Make sure the charging pin touches with the board interface to establish connection. The CCONT IC for DCT3 or UEM for DCT4 or the "K" resister for non-Nokia models may be damaged If the phone still does not charge after adjustments are made, the problem is CCONT IC for DCT3 or UEM for DCT4 or ?K? resister for non-Nokia models.
