    Has anyone else's wall charger that came in the box stopped working? If so, how do I fix it short of buying a new one?

    they are cheap. 25 bux.

    I gave up on my wall charger - had to keep fiddling with it to make contact. Ended up buying a Moto car charger for my Xoom and using an ac to car charger wall adaper that I bought a while ago from BB. Works great now and I have more charging options.

    Actually signed up just to answer this, took the time to do so in case it helps since I searched every place I could imagine on how to fix it.

    The problem stems from the small metallic sleeve around the pins. This is a free fix, and sorry for the lack of pictures just don't have the time.

    UNPLUG THE CHARGER FROM THE WALL (DUH!)

    Simply take a small to medium pair of Chanel-Lock pliers and GENTLY squeeze the top and bottom of the sleeve together. When I say GENTLY, I MEAN GENTLY. Just a tiny amount of pressure, stop - plug it in the wall, the phone and test. Took two times to get the correct amount of bend needed for mine.

    I am a handgun, not a metalurgist...

    hope that helps and I will try to stop by if anyone else has any questions

    Put a little tutorial up on how to fix this, hope it helps someone else considering you purchased a new one already.

    For all who own a Xoom Tablet and have problems with the charger...DO NOT buy one. Call motorola and they will replace it for free for the lifetime that you own the tablet. I have had problems with two chargers where the jack that goes in the tablet got bent. I first went to verizon and they did not have the charger and instead sold me a usb charger...did they not know that the Xoom can only be charged by the jack charger. So after no verizon stores having this charger in stock I decided to call Motorola and they replaced it for free...No sooner did I get it I accidentally dropped the tablet and the charger wound up getting bent. I was afraid that they were not going to replace it but they did...apparently the design of the charger is a bad design and they will replace this charger for the lifetime of the tablet with no questions asked!! only after getting the customer service person to admit that it was a bad design.
