    Hi guys,

    Last night when I plugged in my power cord, it did not begin to charge, so I unplugged it and looked and the power cord was smoking and sparking. Do you know what would cause this? I am looking for a micro USB cable to see if the phone socket is still working.

    If the phone socket is broken, I guess HTC support is the first place to go?

    Only thing I can think of is that the voltage output of the socket is more than what the power cord can handle.
    Yes, pretty much that's all you can do :p

    This happened to me with my Blackberry Storm. It ended up being the generic charger I was using (from ebay) since the original charger worked fine on it afterward.

    My problem is fixed!
    For anyone else who may experience this problem, it was actually caused by a bad battery apparently, they shipped me a new battery and charger and now it works fine. And the tech support process was very painless, I am relieved after some of the horror stories from the beginning of the launch.
