No. HDMI ports are only data ports. There is no power routed through them as there is in USB ports.

SOURCE: Power port on le1600 does not charge batteries.

We contacted Motion about an issue with our docking station because our power & USB ports stopped working, or worked only intermittently. We were instructed to remove the front cover from the docking station to check the connection of the cables. We found that the cable had completely disconnected (it had evidently pulled loose from tilting the dock up and down). Once the cable was reattached, and the cover reassembled, viola! Success!

Hi Johhnie,


To repair a charging port you will need the following:

  • fine tip soldering iron (Weller 15 watt)
  • Dremel tool with cut off wheel
  • De-soldering Braid
  • Torx T5 screwdriver
  • small flat bladed screwdriver (optional)
  • Diagonal cutters
  • small hemostat or fine tweezers
  • Panavise, helping hands or similar bench top holding device.

Take off the back cover and remove the battery.
Next, whip out that Torx T5 and remove the screws holding the phone together. On this one, there were only four to remove.
With the screws out, gently pull the phone apart. The lower half of this Motorola clips together, so I gently worked around the edges with a small flat screwdriver until it came apart.
The SIM card board easily separates from the phone via the flat SMD connector. Just gently apply pressure near the connector and it comes right off.
Next, the flat ribbon cable needs to be detached in the same manner, and the main PC board removed from the phone. It should pull right out once the cable is disconnected.
As you disassemble the phone, put each of the pieces into a parts bin. Any sort of container will do, but I'd avoid a static generating plastic Tupperware container.
Carefully place the board in your clamp/Panavise/whatever - I had to line up the buttons with the slots in the vise, or I probably would have damaged them when I clamped the board
You'll need a new connector before you can fix anything.
In order to check the condition of the pins, clip the two tabs that hold the rear shielding on to the connector with a pair of diagonal cutters.
With the rear shield removed, we can access the rear pins - Unlike the front, everything looks pretty good. The advantage of surface mount parts is that they don't require much solder to hold together. Unfortunately, when you're replacing a surface mount part, a small amount of solder can keep you from removing the part without damaging the board.
To keep from burning this foam seal, peel it back and stick it off to the side.
Enter the rotary tool. Sliced the top off of the connector by cutting the sides lengthwise.
Next, cut across the center of the connector. The bent pins should be gently cut loose and the upper half of the plastic connector will probably fall apart. The shielding on the sides should be cut to allow each leg to be removed individually. (Be careful not to cut the PC board below!)
Working from one side to the other, heat up the solder pad on each pin. Then use some tweezers to grip each pin of the connector. (I used a small pair of alligator forceps) If the solder is hot enough, the surface mount pin should come loose with little to no force. It's vitally important to be as gentle as possible with each one. The solder pads on the PC board are very delicate, and easy to pull up if you're not careful. Unfortunately, overheating the pads can also cause them to pull up. So be quick about it!
With the delicate pins out of the way, I carefully cut apart the remaining plastic and removed it.
Finally, the remaining legs of the shielding were heated and removed from the board.
After the new port is aligned (double check the pins in the rear!) solder one of the shielding legs to the board. Double check the pin alignment again, and solder the other legs. Now the port should be solidly mounted.
Next, the pins on the new port need to be soldered. The super fine tip on my 15 watt Weller pencil made this easy. Alternatively, you can use a wider tip to solder things and go back over the pins with de-soldering braid to remove any solder bridges. If you forgot to remove the rear shield, you'll have one hell of a time soldering the pins. On this particular phone, the metal shielding behind the port made it impossible to access the pins without removing the rear shielding.

Regards


Martin

SOURCE: Hi my iruli tablet charging port broke now it

See with a magnifying glass if there is any green oxides in the port on the contacts. If any use a fine needle to clean them out while the battery is out. This often fixes the problem. But if it is physically broken you may need to buy another one with broken screen and take apart ( tools are sold on ebay with instructions) and replace the port. Sometimes you can just buy a port on ebay.

My tablet was in use, needed charging, it shut off. Now it won't charge or come on


It sounds like there's a problem with the charger. The wire on the charger is rather delicate. So is the port on your tablet where the wire plugs in. There may be a break inside the wire. If you dropped your tablet while the wire was plugged in and it hit the floor on the charger plug, the charger plug could have damaged the charging port in the tablet or the wire itself could be damaged.
Find someone else who has the same tablet and ask to switch chargers to see if either of them still work on the other tablet. If your friend's charger starts charging your tablet without a problem, then the problem is a a broken wire in your charger. If neither charger will charge your tablet but both chargers charge your friends tablet without a problem, then the problem is with the charging port on your tablet.

Try another charger, if that does not work it is more an likely the charging port, which you will need to get repaired.

Why won't the tablet charge


Lots of variables here, but the most likely suspects are always cable and charger, but charging ports will also sometimes get twisted, bent, or detached from the circuit board. Do you get the charging light (usually a small LED next to the charging port)? If there is not an LED indicator, you can also - if the tablet is on - look at the battery indicator while plugging/unplugging, but give it a couple of seconds to register on screen while you try each option. If you get nothing that way, the cheap way to debug is to borrow a friend's matching cable and charger and see whether either solves the problem. Try all combinations, and be sure to make a firm, straight connection each time you plug in a cable. In my experience, cables are the worst offenders. Don't settle for cheap ones. Not worth the grief.
