Why do I have to push the micro-usb cable in for my phone to charge?


AC Question

I have an HTC One M8 and in order for the phone to charge I need to either push the cable in or bend the connector in a certain direction. I've tried this with multiple micro-USB cable; Samsung, LG, Amazon, No-name brand but to no avail.

Welcome to the forums. Since it is happening with different cables, the problem may be in the USB connection in the phone. You can check out local repair shops for an estimate.
