Dell Venue 8 7840 Charging Issue

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello Everyone, long time no see ^-^

Anyways, straight to the problem. I have a Dell Venue 8 7840 tablet. The tablet works fine, but it has one BIG problem.

The charging port, is well, broken or something. If I plug in the charger normally, the tablet does not charge. At first I assumed the tablet was dead, then I found out a way to get around this problem.

If I keep a lot of pressure on the charging port by pushing the wire into the charging port constantly, the tablet starts to charge. A bit of wiggling while the pressure is applied is required for the tablet to charge. So I have to put a lot of pressure on the port, then wiggle it around till it catches a charge.

Not very convenient, before, I could just plug in the charger and it would start charging, like normal.

Now i have to constantly push the charger into the port to keep it charging.

Any ideas what is wrong or how to fix?

The port has probably just been worn or the cable has gotten worn.


Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.
