Re: 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.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Are you using a USB charger? If so, check the current capacity. It will be listed on the charger. Also, see if you can find another cable to swap. Another thing to try would be to hook it up to a computer port to see if that works. If not, see if you can do a hardware reset, which the user manual should describe. I've had phones that had to be reset to charge.
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.
You can charge the battery of your iPhone by connecting it to a USB-port of a computer.
If you're on the road, try a gas station with a shop and look if they sell alternative USB or car chargers for your iPhone. A USB charger will always have an output of 5 volt (5V) but the current must be minimum 1 ampere or 1000 mili Ampere (1A or 1000mA).
When you see a charger with (5V/500mA) it will not work.
-(5V/1A) = OK
-(5V/2,2A) = OK
-(5V/1000mA) = OK
-(5V/2500mA) = OK
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.
Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.
After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.
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.
try your charger with another phone to be or try your phone with another charger to be sure the charger is good.
the charger is good, then the next thing to check is your phone's
charging port. Some times, the charging port for K750i is usually
dirty, have dust, or may be rust and won't contact the charger well
because of this, thereby, not making the phone charge.
Get a metal and use it to scratch all the areas of the charging port, then fix in your charger to see if it will charge.
If it still does not charge, then it means, you have to get another charging port.
You also have an option of using a desktop charger to charge your phone.
look at the 6 pins on the phones charge port and see if one is higher than the others (usually on the end). if the pins is too far up the lower half doesnt connect to the charger. If your usb port will charge on via usb "DOCK" then more than likely the charger itself (which is way more simple to fix)
1.) if one of the pins on the phones charge port is pushed up, grab a sewing needle and GENTLY push the pin back into place,
2.) if the charging dock is working and is a usb charger like your wall charger, buy a new wall charger at your local electronics store.
The charger port is going bad. It happens over time The symptom of this is you have to hold it into place.
The first step is to contact your carrier to see if it is covered under warranty. If it is, great get it replaced.
If not, you have 3 options:
1. you can get the charging port repaired. The cost is about 50 dollars. I recommend Cellulardr.com
2. you can get a new phone. cost ???
3.Youcan get an external battery charger to charger the battery separate fromphone. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you canhave one charging at all times. The best and cheapest place to buy a new charger for yourshine is ebay. They run about 5 dollars shipped. Check out thefollowing link for the selection.
