Use alcohol on a cotton swab to clean it, if this diet work the use WD40. Spray the the metal parts of the plug give it afew minutes like 10, then rubb it gently with cotton rugg, it should dissolve all the oxides and loosen the dirt completely.

    I’ve been spraying on WD40 but not leaving it on for the time you suggested. I did try it again following your directions and it worked PERFECTLY. Thanks!

Clean it with rubbing alcohol or vodka. They are gold flashed, so they shouldn't corrode. The black will be dirt.

Testimonial: "Wrong. It’s oxidation. I’m sure of that. I tried your method. Many people are having the same problem with 3rd party lightning cables as well as certified Apple cables."

    Okay, you never said they were counterfeit. Genuine Apple cable are gold plated. Use chrome cleaner, like Flitz or Solvol Autosol.

    The oxidation is on an Anker as well as on an Apple lightning cable. The only thing that does anything is putting copper cleaner on the end of my Dremel tool with a felt bit. Some but not all of the black material comes off.

    I have these but in 6 feet length. For the cost, I would just buy new.

Why is my iphone not charging?


This means it's not getting a charge. I've just experienced this problem myself. I followed instructions online regarding cleaning lint from the charging port of the phone. Still no charge. I bought a charging cable that came with a car charger made by Belkin, this worked in the car, also allowed me to charge the phone from the pc, but wouldn't charge from the original plug. So I purchased an original Apple branded lightning cable today and it works. At last. So it turns out that my cable was faulty and another branded cable would not work with the Apple plug. So you need to try a known working Apple cable and plug and failing that clean out the port on the phone as lint is a common problem.

My iphone is pluged up and it is supposed to have a lightning bolt beside the battery life and it doesn't . It is almost dead and this phone is brand new. What do I do?


When charging the lightening bolt should be shown in the middle of the battery symbol! Are you using an original Apple charging cable and is it a USB mains or computer charger?

My iPhone is flashing battery and beeping


I assume it is on the black screen with the empty battery. If it doesnt come up with the little lightning bolt to show it is charging then it is likely the cable or charger are dead. try laptop USB charging port instead. Note I have had faulty cables that would lock up each USB port tried until I rebooted. try a friends charging rig that you know works. Another thing to check, is pocket fluff in the charge port which may prevent you inserting charging cabel correctly.
