    Nexus not accepting a charge--help?

    My Galaxy Nexus won't take a charge. I've done multiple hard reboots, have tried all different cords in different outlets and in the laptop, and it looks like it's charging... the lightening bolt is in the battery... but it's not charging at all. My husband has the same phone and he charged his battery and let me use it so I can back up my phone. I have it plugged into the laptop to back up and that's working, I can transfer data no problem, but it's still not taking a charge. I read some other posts about cleaning out the port and adjusting the male portion inside the port and I've done both of those but it didn't make a difference. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice for me? Thanks so much for any help you can provide!

    Really does look as if something from the port has been dislodged or in someway become moist and corroded!! You have tried charging your battery in another phone have you!! Have you tried connecting in and out and slightly moving the lead around and also in and out quickly for a number of times!! Are you insured!! My hardware store in my area have often had to several times taken the phone apart and reassembled for any positive results, and half the time new parts have not been needed!!

    Yes, I've charged my battery in another phone, no problem. Yes, I've also tried moving the lead around slightly and have connected and disconnected from power cords many times. I am insured, I just hate calling Verizon customer service because the first thing they always want me to do is factory reset my phone and that's such a PITA. Was hoping someone else had similar problems and there was a good fix before I have to call and deal with them. And the people at my local store are salespeople, they don't seem to have a technician on staff there. :/

    I had a similar issue with my GNex and had to have the phone replaced. I never found anything that would work. I did the port manipulation thing and I cleaned the various parts with an eraser and methanol in an attempt to remove some unseen corrosion. Nothing worked. CLN phone has worked 100% great from it's arrival.
