HTC One Charging Port Repair Guide

If your HTC One won't charge, the charging port could be the culprit. The following guide details how to repair or replace your HTC One charging port.

Clean your HTC One charging port

Before you decide to replace your HTC One charging port make sure it's clear of dust and debris that can build up inside and prevent a solid connection with your phone charger. You can do so by:

blowing compressed (or canned) air into the charging port
using a cotton swab to pull lint and dust out of the charging port
using a needle wrapped with double-sided tape to pull dust and debris out of the charging port

In addition, you should make sure your charger works by testing it on a different device and by testing a working charger on your HTC One. If your charger works and your charging port is clean yet your HTC One still won't charge, chances are you'll need to replace the charging port.
