  • Power adapter/charger problems. Testing by substitution. Testing with a multimeter (not easy). Repair - not easy and may be dangerous. Frayed and broken leads. --Pleriche (talk) 21:26, 8 April 2020 (UTC)

Not charging: Obviously, test the charger by substitution, check th ouput voltage if possible. A cheap USB analyser will give its output voltage and tell you whether your device is drawing current.

Charging/sync ports are vulnerable, but often replaceable. --Philip (talk) 16:32, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
