Marchino - Hero!

I have just one addition. I expected, that I only had to pry it a little bit. But after my second attempt, and really getting in there, I succeded. I actually rased both my arms in victory like a Tour de France stage winner. <3


-- Update --

After doing this, I've experienced, that I might have to do it again, after som time.

I had this problem yesterday, and thought I was going to have to spend hundreds of dollars on a new phone today. Fortunately, I had a couple spare batteries to use in the mean time. I decided to look online to see if other people were having problems, and I came across this. Thank you Marchino! You solved my problem, and saved me tons of money! :grin:

I had the same problem. I found the fix online - took 1 minute. The USB port and plug were not making good contact. I could run the phone on power from the charger, but it would not actually charge.

Look inside the USB port and you will see a "tab" there. Lever this up gently (after removing the battery) towards the centre of the port.

That fixed it for me. BTW. my phone is less than nine months old!

I find some of the newer plugs and sockets are just not engineered well - I've had the same problem with HDMI on my TV.
this worked for me thanks :)

Marchino, sir, you are absolutely a life saver!!! Thank you so much. I know that it was a really easy fix, but my brain just doesn't think of things like that and I just panic. Anyways, I did exactly what you said to do, and BAM.. I have a running working nexus again! Thank you and God Bless you! :)

I literally just slowly adjusted the tab in my micro USB port and it worked. The phone charged while powered on but as soon as I unplugged it the charging symbol no longer appears again. Can SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME I TRIED IT ONCE NOW IT DOESN'T CHARGE AGAIN WHAT SHOULD I DO. Readjust it? Is it possible that I adjusted it to far?
