Why Won’t My Phone Charge?

iPhones are some of the best phones on the market with the highest technology that was developed to be reliable and efficient. That being said, the more specialized something becomes the more complicated it can get. Various electronic devices are likely to fail in some ways over others because of day to day wear and tear.

An iPhone that doesn’t charge can be frustrating and problematic. Phones are a constant part of our lives. We have all of our information on them all the time. So when your phone won’t charge this can be very stressful.

There are several reasons that your phone may not be charging. Here are some of the most common ones. 

1) Too Much Junk

Over time little slots and spots collect oils, dust, dirt and debris. This may prevent some ports from connecting properly and therefore solid connections are not established. This is especially common with people that work in open or dusty areas. In some cases it is recommended to keep your phone in a dust proof location or case. There have even been occasions that there were foreign objects in the way of the port such as a tiny piece of plastic or wood. This can be fixed by cleaning out the dust. However, it is important to have the cleaning done by a professional to prevent extra damage.

2) Chemical Contact

Your phone is pretty much always where you are. It may have had various house cleaners spilled on it. It may have been exposed to chemical spray or dust. Most chemicals have at least some reaction to metal. Those reactions can weaken connections within ports, or can damage the tiny wires. Especially if your phone were to be accidentally dropped into a pool of chemicals. Even if it was pulled out of the liquid extremely quickly, the damage may still have been done.

3)Some Standard To Check

Often times the USB cable at the base of the connection to the phone gets worn out. Once the protective covering on the cable is worn through the cable inside wears out even more quickly. Check over your cable first to make sure its not damaged.

Sometimes the connection is not completely established between the cable and the phone or the wall and the cable. Sometimes the USB connector can become partially unplugged from the wall plug. Check over these connections. Unplug and replug them to make sure the connections are solid.

Sometimes you may need to reboot your phone. Odd things can happen when software needs to or when it just has updated.

It is important to protect your phone from unnecessary dust, dirt, chemicals, drops, and falling. If you have checked over all your connections and are still having charging issues, contact us today! We can get you squared away!
