    GN doesn't charge at main but does with USB to PC

    Hello all,

    First of all I'd like to say I'm a newcomer here Recently I spilled coffee (silly boy, I know) on my Galaxy Nexus. I've had a single problem with the phone since. The functionality of the phone seems to be intact. No problems with the touch screen, calls or any applications, so I can count myself lucky on that front. Also, the battery doesn't seem damaged. BUT - ever since it happened my phone hasn't charged through the mains/plug in the wall. It does however charge while connected to my laptop via USB. Initially the phone had to be off for it to charge. But now it seems to charge via USB, albeit extremely slowly. Has anyone ever experienced this before with their handset? I am pondering over putting in an insurance claim for the phone (25/~$40 charge) or going to a repair shop to get it looked at. As it seems to me it seems like the micro USB is where the fault lies, the latter option might be considerably cheaper and will save me losing my phone for four weeks while the insurance company stroke their chins over it. I have had the phone for around five months. Does anyone have any input on what they think I should do about this?

    Thanks in advance for any responses you make to my post.

    -Steve

    Are you using the same USB cord? I don't think it is the plug, as it wouldn't work on the computer either. Another thing you should do is check and see if the phone took on water, or in your case, coffee. You can tell by the sticker on the battery.

    My GN just started this yesterday. I tried different cords, different wall bases and it worked, but then it didnt, my other Android charges fine with all chords and bases. It also charged using my car charger fine for a while, but now it doesnt either. ONLY CHARGES WHEN CONNECTED TO LAPTOP USB.
    No water damage of any kind. Really odd. Might have to send it back to the manufacturer. Thank goodness I didnt get rid of my back up phone
