Charging Issues by prettytasha(f): 2:19pm On Jan 21, 2021
My phone seems to be having some charging issues , some chargers work and some don't , I have to press the charger in for a while before it starts charging , it's a type c charging port yet it's only charging one way

I read online that it might be dirt clogged in the charging port , I tried cleaning but still same issues . Is there any fix to this ?

Or I have to replace the charging port ? I'm scared because I don't want this engineers to spoil the phone when trying to fix the charging port

is your phone name a popular brand?
if yes,u can easily get it changed
if no,just hope engineers can fix it for u
next time don't buy type c charging port for peace of mind
what type c charging port did to me,will never forget
also try this, go buy new age type c USB cable
remember,new age USB,it costs around 800naira
type c charging port are somehow and it may depend on the USB mouth
go buy that new age USB first,there is picture of okocha on the paper,its original quality
that's d only thing I know

Lol funny thing is the phone just developed another fault it's going on and off.

Can you suggest any phone I can get for 30k ? At least 4G compatible

See your reasoning at this technologically advanced age. Within the next two years type c ports will be the standard

Madam you might have to change your full charging board cause changing just the port is a temporary fix. Problem will now be where to find pixel charging board.

Since you're looking for a new phone I have a Redmi note 4x 3/64 variant at just 33k

what are u saying like WTF! type c port is the real deal now. Even Apple has started tapping into type c technology. Type c is really good and very soon every manufacturer would use it on all their smartphones. micro USB port is old fashioned and doesn't perform up to type c. there are many phones with faulty micro USB ports. several people complain about it. it's not a type c port problem. pls always find out about something before making conclusions. my current phone uses a type c port and even my former phone had it still I had no probs with charging. I'll never buy any phone with micro USB port... never going back to old technology. it's even so ridiculous that transsion phones are still using micro USB ports at this point even in their flagship phones and mid-range phones
