Hi All,
I've got a 2 year-old XZ1 which has decided to be a bit temperamental charging - sometimes it charges and now it doesn't.  It works perfectly apart from the charging so I have a feeling that it could be the USB connector.
My plan is to replace the USB connector and the battery while I'm at it but before I order the parts, I'd appreciate any suggestions or advice.
Thanks in advance,
Mike

Usb replacement if there is a problem with the cable and its contact - maybe you just need a new cable ...
Slow charge or bad charge - battery old , life 40% and below ... It needs a new one ...

Thanks for that - I've tried a number of cables (all known good) without success so looks like the USB port.  Not enough charge to check the battery status but will do that once I've got the phone charging again.

HI Mike,

A bit late for this but I hope the parts sorted you out. Glad to see you tried a few steps first would be a shame to replace all the parts and it turns out its the cable. ( I may have done that before ðŸ˜‘)

Thanks Tom - all sorted.  When I opened up the phone, the charging port connector to motherboard was disconnected and wasn't a good fit when I refitted it.  New port & problem solved. Only issue is that the adhesive sheets don't include the bottom speaker seal - had to buy a waterproof flexible sealant. 

At least when the battery gets weak, I know I can do the replacement!
