    Default Melted my micro usb port!

    I plugged my nexus 4 in and realised it wasn't charging I moved it to another socket and it still didn't charge. Then I noticed a sort of soldering smell I unplugged my phone as quickly as possible but it still seems it the micro usb port got melted slightly. The phone will charge but is not recognised by my pc. What should I do to fix this i.e. send it back buy spare parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    *edit my original micro USB cable is totally useless to charge and attempt to connect to the PC I used a different cable

    My first thought would be to send it back to LG or Google, I am pretty sure that is not an intended feature

    Just call/email Google and RMA it.

    How did it go? Did the warranty cover it? The same happened to my nexus 4 (ordered a wireless charger to make sure I saved everything before sending it off), so I'm a bit curious. I contacted LG, sent it in and they claimed water damage! I've only had it for a couple of months and been really careful with it. They want 200 to repair it or 20 for just sending it back. It's a joke!
