How to Fix Smartphone not charging when plugged in?

1.Check your charger it may be damaged. I suggest you try a new one or replace the cables in a few cases the charger or its cable will be at fault.Also try another outlet in your home or try charging from your computer.

2.The charge port may be corroded or dirty. I suggest that you clean the charge port thoroughly you can learn how to do so here: How to clean the charge port to fix phone that’s not charging.

3.If none of the above still does not work then power off the phone and remove the battery. Next hold down power while the battery is out for a minute and then replace the battery and while still off plug your phone in. In my experience it should start to charge while off. When it’s fully charged disconnect and then power up and use your phone as normal. You can try charging after this while the phones on and it should start working again as normal.

4.In a few cases it may be a situation where your charge port is damaged and you will need to have it repaired, this usually happens on older device after extended or prolonged usage.
