    Hello, I noticed today that my charge port on my note 2 is damaged. What I mean is, no matter which 3 of my chargers I use, I must put downward pressure on the cord to get the phone to charge cause if not, the screen starts to blink. Anyone know if this can be fixed via a replacement part? Don't have warranty. Don't want to send bthe phone to Samsung. Thanks in advance!

    Try a different usb cable. That's you're only option since there are no user-replaceable parts in these things.

    I do recall people replacing the charge port end. Remembered after I posted this thread, it was the folks wanting wireless charging. I'm going to find the part and post it up.

    At least you can still use an external charger.

    I have that same problem because I use a charging dock. However at&t wont exchange it cause I have a visible defect on it. The only thingbi do is use my dock for charging and then I gotta play with the cord fordata transfer .

    I think this kind of damage is very common. A few of my devices (note the Note 2) got the same type of damage. They won't charge unless the plug is hold at a certain angle or depth. The center part of the female socket (little piece of metal) is very fragile. The Apple new lightning connection is a much better design I think.

    I cannot quite find it right now, but I remember reading someone said that you could carefully spread the tabs on the charger a little. You might search for it. If I had time I would search for you.

    I saw some videos on YouTube that showed how to remove lint from the charger port. It is not really noticeable when they try to show you that it is in there but even a fraction of a millimeter can prevent the adapter from reaching in as far as it needs to go. Sample. It's worth a try ;)

    On most Galaxy devices it'll tell you the charging current, so you'll know if you have a good charger/cable combo. FWIW, it didn't work on my Asus Transformer. If you like it, consider supporting the dev by buying it Play Market (99 cents).

    The charger I use at night for my phone was 1400 ma (which is better for the battery). My HP Touchpad charger is 1800. The ASUS charger for my Nexus 7 was 1400 with the same cable. I know my Transformer with dock will not charge both batteries (dock & tablet) with my HP TP charger, which I used to use for everything. Nice tool, but I wish it would work with all my devices.
