How To Fix Loose USB Phone Charger Wire Using PAPER

fix wobbly charger port with paper

If the micro usb port is loose on your phone and is not charging, you will always get an unreliable charge. It is hassle moving around the charger wire to get a stable charge. Most of the time replacing the USB charger cable will not fix this issue. This is because its related to the actual port on the phone or tablet. Its probably worn out due to over use of constant plugging and unplugging during the years. Its a tricky job to actually replace it because of all the little solder points you will have to make. Unless you got the time, patients and soldering skills, its not going to be easy to repair this problem yourself.
