iPhone 4 Charging Problem – Getting Over it in an Easy Way
One of the biggest indications that your iPhone 4 is going through charging problems is that it does not give any response or it gives a “Not Charging” notification when the charger is connected to its charging terminal. This is surely a very serious issue, as your iPhone 4 won’t last even a single day without charging.
Following are the different iPhone 4 Charging problems and their solution:
iPhone 4 “No response while charging” issue
When you encounter iPhone 4 charging problem in which it does not give any response when the charger is connected, then it could be due to any of the following reasons:
- Charging Connector is water damaged
- Dry solder of connector pin
- Pins doesn’t make contact with board
- Faulty components.
- Change your charger and check
- Clean the pins of your charger and check.
- Change battery of your phone and check.
P.S. Always use iPhone’s original battery and charger.
In order to resolve this issue, all you have to do is to:
- Clean Charging dock
- Connect Charger and check voltage at charging pin (it should be 5v).
- If the voltage is not shown at multi meter then it means that your charging pin is dry solder or it might have any other problem.
- Now again solder the charging pin and put the battery back in to verify whether it is working now or not.
- If the condition of charging connector is unusable then change charging dock.
iPhone 4 “not charging” Issue
If you encounter “Not Charging” notification when you plug the charger in your iPhone then most probably it is due to the faulty charging dock. Charging dock becomes faulty due to any of the reasons:
- It is water damaged
- Charging pin is damaged (clean the charging dock pins or change the charging dock).
- Same as of iPhone 4 “No response while charging” issue.
If there is no problem with the charging dock, then the very first thing that you need to have along your side is the Apple Inc’s original battery and charger (Lithium polymer battery, 3.7v, 5.25Whr, 1420mAh). After getting that, then all you have to do is to follow the following steps:
- Verify with the help of multi meter whether the voltage at diode is 5v or not.
- Now check the capacitor which is near the charging IC.
- Reheat the IC or you can also change it if needed. You can also choose to go with changing the bottom strip, as it will also solve the problem.
