How To Fix HTC Nexus 9 Charging Port Replacement

Charging port problems like slow charging or not charging at all are commonly seen in cellphones after frequent use. When your device experiences charging problems, the first thing you should do is to check whether the charger is an original or not.

    Hello, I have tried 4 different replacement boards (charging port) for the Nexus 9 and the touch does not work for any of them. Charging works. Anyone have any advice or experience with this?

    Thank you in advance,

    Way too many steps. Remove battery, tape, screws, connector cover, open zip connectors, remove board. 5 minutes if you have the correct tools.
