The Casio G'zOne Boulder was the worst of the lineup. While Casio designs the phone, PCD (previously UTStarcom, previously Audiovox) was the one that built it. And PCD is a lowest bidder when it comes to manufacturing. The charging port is the same one LG phones before it used, and it is a notoriously fragile charge port, which breaks at the slightest provocation. While it is possible to soldier on a new charging port, it would be wise to just get a new phone, because by now, the front panel also will be detaching off the phone, amongst other things, which will compromise its water and dust resistance.

The same thing happened to my Gz One Boulder. I sent it back to Verizon for replacement. The 2nd Gz One Boulder also had problems with the charging port within 2 weeks after I got it so I sent it back too.

I am now on my 3rd Gz One Boulder. I've only had it 2 days. Time will tell if the charging port on this one will hold up. Frankly I doubt it.

My best advise to you is get a different phone if you have the opportunity to do so.

Charger port broke on Lenovo a3000 tablet


Most of the time they are not worth fixing since the charger port is connected directly to the main board so you would have to replace the whole board. Rich

My bb curve wont charge ive tryed a new battery and charger the red light doesnt even turn on idk wat to do i just woke up and it was off plzzz help


Hi
Try cleaning your phone charger port wit brush.do it gently.
check for the charger port is loose with the board or not.
if its loose .you have to take it to the technician to fix it.
If this problem occured while your phone is being connected with charger then this might be a problem with the mother board.some times it happen becz of voltage fluctuation.
Thank you.

The charge port on my Casio Boulder does not work anymore is there a place I can send it to have it repaired?


Try your local corporate carrier's store. Most corporate locations have repair on site and some even replace the device on site if it is less than a year old.
Franchise locations usually do not follow the above practices.

The charger port on my g zone boulder came out


you can get a dock to charge it on..u will need your wall charger and it plugs into the desktop charger/dock/cradle or whatever u wanna call it. Then u bypass the need for a port. Bad thing is u cant use the car charger easily without taking the dock with u in the car/but can be done! I am looking for replacement ports for casio phones..if anyone knows where u can buy them?

My casio gz boulder phone will not charge with new chargers that i have purchased. Have seen online that there is a cradle that can be purchased.Help!!


Hi, it's a common known problem that this phone's internal charging system FAILS after about 4-12 months...I have to literally tie a rubber band to the charger's "line" while the phone is being charged to get it to work. (You know--when the red light comes on it's charging--so you have to get the charger line in a certain place & keep it there so it will work.) A real pain in the ***--I'm 17 days from an upgrade--which sux, because I like this phone other than this. Of course, verizon no longer sells it--probably for this very reason. Good luck & just keep the phone as "still" as you can when it's charging. Oh, and I have the charger cradle--that was the first thing to GO as far as charging. I WON'T WORK AT ALL....

My casio boulder will not charge how do I fix it


Hi, you can check with another charger first to know exactly what the problem really is before you can take the next step .Also check the phone on another charger.

After checking with another charger, if charger work,that means the charging sport where you plug in the charger is not working and need to be replaced.

If when you check the charger with another phone and and the charger doesn't work, replace charger.

Take care.

Will not charge


It could be that the battery is bad. Bring your phone in to any repair shop and try using another battery. Most cellphone shops or stores has a test battery.

If you couldn't find a test battery, refer to a cellphone tech to test if the battery is still okay.

Charger


If the port is suffering from a bad connection, you have to re solder it to the motherboard. I recomend you take it to a shop unless your an expirenced computer tech. Or you could replace the motherboard, but if your gonna do that, you are better off buying a new computer. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Charger port on phone busted


I don't know what you want to hear. If the USB port is broken off, you will either have to get a new phone, or open it up and solder it back on. There are probably 4 "feet" at the corners of the USB port that broke lose from the board and you will need to reattach these. Alternatively, you could find the same phone on eBay that has a broken screen or some other problem that leads you to believe it has a good ESN and a good motherboard. Buy that phone and swap the entire board out. RadioShack has a good tool kit that works with most mobile phones, it's about $15.
