Nexus 6 won't charge

3,339 483 September 14, 2018 at 11:07 AM
I have tried multiple cables all brand new and I have to push the cable all the way to the right and hold it there for it to charge. If it moves back to the center it stops charging, and to the left no charge as well.

Why does it only charge if I push it to the right and can anything be done?

Thanks.

I have a Nexus 6 (I've had it for just over 2 years now).

Just to make sure I'm on the same page, you said the phone has no charge left. When trying to charge, is the led coming on? If it is, it's a fairly common problem with the Nexus 6 that can occur when it's completely drained of power. In this case, it's not your cables. Plugging into a computer, instead of a wall charger, and attempting to power on will take it out of that state. I've found that Qi chargers also take it out of this state as well. Once it has booted, it can be connected to your wall charger as normal.

If the amount of charge that the phone has, has no bearing on if it will charge, the problem is probably the quality of your cables. A cable that doesn't have a snug fit, won't work. I don't have any problems using new cables with my phone. That being said, I have tossed several cables over time that were no longer snug and would not charge.

the usb port separated from the board. the nexus 6 has qi wireless charging. you can get one of those chargers or have the usb port repaired.
