Problems with Charger port

  1. I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 from USCellular, and I have had it for about a year and a half. Right around the year mark, I started having problems with the battery not even lasting a full day. Then when I went to put it on charge, it would not charge. I would have to wiggle the charger or hold it in a certain position to get it to charge, but now, I can not seem to get it to work at all.

    One of the charger port pins isn't making good contact with the motherboard. When you get it into just the right position it works. But as you move it around trying to get a good position you make little sparks that will eventually chew up the motherboard, and you''ll need a full motherboard replacement.

    You can have it fixed now, or you can wait until it goes completely, but it'll probably cost about the same amount either way.
