    Default Samsung Transform Ultra charging port problem

    Problem is that the phone wouldn't charge this morning. After a little wiggling on the cord it finally started charging. Once I unplugged it the phone started to act like someone was continually plugging and unplugging the charger cord. This evening I pushed a screwdriver across some of the contacts and around the port, now it's acting normal, but when I plug the cord in it doesn't have the same snap or pop into place that it once had. Any help would be appreciated, Thank you.

    Look at the port with a good magnifier and in a good light. Compare what you see to a good port (in another phone, maybe). The problem is usually some dirt in the port or something bent.

    I have called Samsung and it would be nice if they just sent me a refurbished phone since it's still under warranty. It would make a nice Christmas gift for my sister, since I've already bought a new Samsung Galaxy SII through Boost Mobile.

    Could also be the cord. I know I had issues when in had the Transform Ultra, but I got a new charger and it worked fine.

    Contact the carrier to get it replaced. That's how it works with Verizon anyway.

    So my old Samsung Transform Ultra came back with a new battery and I am assuming a repaired charging port. I don't really know what they did to the port because the invoice just said replaced component, it does work now and I gave it as a gift to my sister.

    Thanks, Rukbat!
    my STU just started doing that, yesterday.
    Unfortunately, no one around me has the microUSB port on their phones.
    What is it supposed to look like when I see it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks again!
