Are you speaking of a USB port (connector) on the laptop?

Scroll down

If so........NO
There is no fuse for any USB ports. Laptop or desktop computer.

That USB port is bad. None of the USB ports work? Then the USB bus is bad, that all USB ports operate off of.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Every time I plug my phone charger in power outlet the fuse blows. hyundai sonata 2013 why

I would just run two new wires from battery , and fit an after market cigarette lighter socket to you car . or just run the wires to the existing charging socket , and remove the factory ones . then you could use a heavier gauge wire and fuse . this is just an idea .

Most likely it is your fuse, check yur fuse panel. Check your manual where fuse is. It should me marked as cigar, or cig or aux. I am sure it is justnthe fuse the blew. Happens all the time. Hope this helps, thanks mike.

Power socket in middle counsole wont charge my cell phone

Check the fuse for the socket and check to see if the charger works in a different vehicle. The chargers will also have a fuse inside them that can go bad. If the fuse isn't burnt out for the socket and the charger doesn't work in another car than its probably the fuse in the charger.

Where is the fuse for cigarette lighter for BMW 2000 5 D series

The lighters frequently burn out after a couple of years but you may still have power to the socket. Plug the charger in and check that the charge indicator light comes on. If it does your fine. If not you'll need to remove the socket and check the wires attached to it.

Power cord light does not come on and garmin does not charge. Unit was ust bought in May 2009.

make sure the socket is working that your plugging the charger in to, like a cell phone. if you verified that the car socket is good, there should be a fuse in the tip of the car charger where it goes in the car socket....just unscrew the tip off...if there is no tip on it, its probably fell off and might be in the car socket.

if the car socket does not power anything else up, locate the fuse in the fuse panel of the car an check the fuse.

if you need further help, just let me know by replying to this post.

My garmin charges with my computer but stopped charging in the car

The most obvious answer is a possible blown fuse in the cigarette lighter socket or the in the tip of the charger plug. Most charger plug fuses are accessed by unscrewing the metal tip. Check both for good fuses.

If this doesn't solve the problem, make sure the points of contact between the charger, cradle and GPS are all free of dirt and grime. Don't forget to vacuum the cigarette lighter socket - especially if it is used as a lighter, too.

Power Socket not working

check your fuse if thats good take a test light or voltmeter and see if you have any power to the socket. If you don't have power you will need to remove your radio and see if the wires are connected to the socket.
