Question about LG Rumor LX260 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

The charging port came completely off on my LX260

How do you repair the charging port? What if I were to get a broken phone (e.g. cracked display) how could I "cannibilize" to fix my original one?

    So are there any good instructions on how to disassemble the phone and/or get to the motherboard- It looks like keeping the sticker intact is key. I was able to find a phone that has a white display problem (not cracked) - it's in pretty good shape - so swapping the mother boards would give me the good port and I'd be back on my way. The phone with the bad display also seems to have a better keyboard. Out of curiousity - does anyone know how much LG charges for out-of-warranty repairs?

You can't repair the charging port because those wires a litterally sautered into the computer board. Potentially you could take the motherboard out of the inside of the cracked screen phone and put it into the charger port phone. Make sure you use the sticker from under the battery on the cracked screen phone and you'll have to get your service changed to that ESN. good luck.

    don't know about LG repairs.


    If you have a screwdriver small enough, it's actually a phillips head. There are 6 screws you take out (phone is face down). Two at top, two at bottom, two in the middle. Pull back the sticker, you will use a small flat screwdriver or probe to crack the case back off the front half of the phone - be careful. There are two screws in the computer board. You will lift the computer board out, disconnect the cable from the front half carefully. Then, put it all in the new one. Make sure to plug that cable in firmly or the phone won't come back on. You'll need to switch your service to the broken screen sticker numbers :-)

Either the charger port on the phone is faulty or the charger itself. Try a different charger if you can and if this works, the dock is faulty, if it doesn't then its the phone. Pretty simple repair and most Treo repair centres will be able to do it.

My blackberry bold wont charge no light comes on just completely dead could it be a faulty battery


Does the red light come one when you plug it into a charger? if not, and your charger works on other phones, than you probably have a broken usb port. (check if it is loose). You're gonna have to disassemble the phone and repair the USB port : Blackberry Repair Guide.

Charging problem


If it is not charging because the charging port is broken, you should go onto Ebay and buy a three dollar universal phone charger. It charges the battery outside of the phone, so a broken port can be ignored. Also, buy another battery so that you can rotate them out every 12 hours. This is the cheapest solution possible, costing under ten dollars to fix completely.

Won't Charge! :-(


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 necessary current 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.

Please rate and god bless:)
