Nokia 7.1 charging port failure
How do I fix a faulty charging port? This is not a cord issue. I bought new cords and they work with another phone. The faulty port appears to be a documented equipment manufacturing issue with Nokia. I have to angle the cord’s USB connector just right into the phone port to get it to charge. To keep the connector in that critical position, I have to firmly secure the plugged phone between a wall and a weight. It is very touchy and the bending eventually destroys the usb connector on the cord. The problem is getting worse and today I cannot get it to start charging at all despite trying all positions and cords. I fear it will go dead. I tried contacting Nokia and I think they won’t take responsibility for this defect and the phone is less than 1.5 years old.
