Charging port not working

My lap top was not charging so i thought it was a problem with the charger only to recognize later after i brought the charger to fix that the problem is actually the port. the guy i took it to says he cant do anything about it and that i should get a new one (lap top). as much as that sounds interesting it isnt to interesting for my pocket. plus i dont want to put my baby down just yet. Can anybody help me?

You should be able to find a local repair shop or person to fix it. Try craigslist.

I usually charge $75-100 to fix that problem, but you can go the diy approach for about $10 if you've got a decent soldering iron and 1-2 hours to kill.

It's not hard but it does take time and a steady hand. You could end up damaging the motherboard be careful.

Check youtube and google for guides, I've never used a guide before myself because I'm cool like that but it might be a good idea to see it so you know what you're getting yourself into.

    The problem is the jack has probably lost some contact with the board and or has become damaged, corroded, etc. etc.

    It's a VERY common problem with all electronics, especially laptops.

Charger port

It may not be the charger or the lap top but a bad battery that refuses to be charged. Have it tested before you do anything. They only last so long.

My samsung gt 15500 won't charge up. It was working fine 2 days ago and yesterday i brought the usb lead to work with me to charge it with my computer. Nothing happened when i plugged it in so i...

If the phone was totally dead before it refused to charge initially, then the refusal to charge is due to the fact that there was no residual charge left to bring it to a charge, because the battery completely died.
To fix it, kick start the charging process.
Remove the battery, and using a universal charger (desktop charger) charge the battery for say 10 minutes, before re- inserting the battery to the phone and continuing with the normal charging process.
If this does not work out, then problem is with the charging port. It has to be replaced. This can be done by nearby local phone repairers.
Hope it helps?

Phone not charging

If the new charger is also not working then surely it's the problem of that charger port (valve). It must have been damaged.U need to get it fixed from the hardware vendor.
