Phone Charging Port Repair Information


This is where the charging port is located on most phones and what it looks like, on iPhones anyways.

The USB charging port might just be one of the most critical components of your phone -- if the charging port has failed it may fail to sync or take a very long time to reach a full charge if it charges it at all. If your phone isn’t charging fully or even at sufficient current it could even damage your battery.

"My Phone Won't Charge"

If you can't get your phone to charge, then there is likely a problem with your phone USB charging port, located on the bottom of most phones. We replace the USB charging port for most phone brands and models.

"How does the charging port break?"

USB charging ports, otherwise known as a USB port, power jack, sync plug, etc., is the most common point of external electrical contact. By using a USB cable we are able to connect our phones to chargers, computers and other devices in order to transfer personal data, audio/video content and, most often, charge the device. These small contact points experience a great deal of wear over time from being physically plugged in and unplugged. Naturally, the effectiveness of these ports degrade over time and need to be repaired or replaced.

"How do I know it's a problem with the charging port?"

When the device doesn't charge you can be almost certain that the USB charging port needs to be replaced. Sometimes, you can visibly see the damage that has occurred from overuse, rough usage, mishandling or plugging in cables the wrong way. Other times the damage may not be visible. The connections itself are very small making it difficult to see physical wear. In these cases, it may be a problem that arose from using an aftermarket charger, cables in poor condition and liquid or water damage.

"My phone charges but my computer doesn't recognize it when its plugged in."

Intermittent problems with the USB charging port could be a sign that it's on its way out and needs to be replaced. This can be observed if it charges but doesn't sync, charging is interrupted, loose connections or you need to keep it in a certain orientation for it to work consistently.

We repair these issues and more. Our expert technicians will evaluate and identify the issues to have your phone fixed, normally within an hour. Read more for additional information on model-specific USB charging port repairs and services.

If your iPhone isn't taking a charge at all and there's no charging indicator showing up when you plug your charging cable into the Lightning port it is nearly certain that your iPhone charging port needs to be replaced.  

 

If a device is experiencing problems with charging or connecting to host devices (PCs), it is worth trying to rule out if the cable being used is to blame, or the connector on the device itself.

If your iPhone 7 charging port is damaged:

  • There may be difficulties in charging the device without holding the cable in a certain position
  • Charging is intermittent. The device constantly reports charging starting.
  • Device seems to charge when connected to PC, but never shows up as a connected device on it
  • The port may be visibly been bent out of shape
  • Pins are receded or broken off

If you notice any of these conditions you should immediately bring your device to any of our convenient locations located in Toronto/Mississauga and our technicians will be happy to assist.

 

You probably use your phone a lot during a normal day, and that can eat up power pretty quickly. Technology has made charging your phone while on the go pretty easy.  But if the charging port in your phone is not powering it, you might soon have a fancy looking brick for a cell phone.

The iPhone 6, 6S and iPhone 6 Plus and 6S Plus uses what Apple calls a “lightning” cable to charge. It is smaller than the chargers used for previous models and is meant for more efficient charging.

Faster charging means you don’t waste time sitting around for your phone to charge. But the lightning port can become less effective or stop working entirely for a variety of reasons:

  • Dust, dirt, or other small bits and pieces stuck inside the port
  • Using third-party lightning cables or chargers
  • Water or liquid damage
  • Physical damage, like bumping it or dropping the iPhone

Some blogs have suggested “hacks” for rapid charging, such as using an iPad charger with your phone, but others have raised concerns about the effect the increased power flowing into the iPhone will have on the life of the phone.

Apple hasn’t specifically said this option is dangerous but lists all iPhones as compatible with the iPad charger. They have not outright told consumers this is a safe practice, as they typically stay silent on topics like these.

Forbes Magazine tried to settle the matter, reporting online,

“More [power] equals more heat, and more heat equals more wear and tear on the iPhone charging circuits. For this reason, it’s common for people to conclude that using the iPad charger is a bad idea. Apple’s silence on the issue isn’t particularly encouraging either. But in this case, knowing just a bit more about how iPhone charging system works may ease your mind.”

-December 2014, Forbes.com

Experts on electronics say the iPhone is fully able to cope with the amount of electricity coming from a slightly larger charger. The charging system is actually prepared to manage almost double the power of the default cable and charger the phone comes with.

Another thing experts say will help your phone deal with the extra power is a small bit of software that allows the phone to communicate with the charging circuit IC's and the charger.

When your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus does not power on or experiences a need to be charged within a few hours, the iPhone could have the following problems:

  • Your charger is bad
  • Your charging port is damaged
  • Your charging circuits on the main logic board (motherboard) have been damaged.

You will need to bring your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus to our expert technicians at one of our convenient TechKnow Space locations in Toronto or Mississauga. Our technicians will methodically and meticulously complete a diagnostics.

If the charging port needs to be replaced, we will do this and deliver your happy iPhone to you within one hour.

 
iPhone 5 Charging Port Replacement Toronto MississaugaThe iPhones 5, 5C and 5S charging port (also called “Lightning Connector”) is revolutionary in design, as now you don’t need to worry which way to plug the charger in. It is also much smaller in size, compared to all previous iPhone models. It leaves more room for other components and allows for a smaller and lighter iPhone.

The USB or Charging Port (Sync port) on your iPhone 5, 5S and 5C are prone to failing because it is a delicate component which you use every day to charge your phone. Dirt and lint from your clothes can build up inside the charging port, as well as moisture can corrode the pins. Sometimes using too much force while connecting the charging cable may also result in a damaged charging port. In fact, iPhone 5/5C/5S charging port replacement is one of the most common repairs we do.

Even though replacing the charging port on an iPhone 5, 5S, 5C may not seem like a very challenging task to a person with no phone repair experience, you should take our advice and do not attempt to do it yourself! You need a wide set of tools and an ESD compliant workstation. The most you can try doing is to try to blow the gunk out of the port with a can of compressed air, but do not stick anything like tweezers, toothpicks or anything else into the port because you run the risk of shorting the pins and rendering your iPhone 5/5C/5S an irreparable paperweight!

Bring your iPhone to the TechKnow repair experts, who will fix your charging port problem within an hour and have peace of mind as we stand behind our work.
