Not charging, screen flickering
Hi all, so I'm working on a friend's Note 10.1 2014 edition, and she brought it to me telling me it wasn't charging. I tried different cables, but the same thing happened - the battery symbol would show up (as drained) first, then the screen would start flickering. I left it charging for 2 hours and not even one bar would show up.
Then I found this forum with the exact same problem. https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr...
So I looked into the USB charging port and sure enough, the pins were bent and damaged. So I ordered a new part, followed the guide here on replacing the charging cable inside. Plugged it in after the change - same exact problem.
I'm stumped and I can't find any others having this issue. What do you think? Bad motherboard?
