iPhone SE will not charge/is not recognized by PC
My iPhone SE was charging and was being recognized by my PC until last night. Now, it will not charge and when I plug it in to my Windows 10 PC, I get a notification saying that the USB device has malfunctioned.
I do not have official charging adapters or Lightning cables, but I have tried two AmazonBasics charging adapters, multiple outlets, and multiple USB ports. The device continues to not charge and to not be recognized by Windows.
I don’t have any data on the device, so I don’t care about losing data. Also, I only have one Lightning cable, so I can’t try to charge the device with another Lightning cable.
I looked through multiple questions on the Answer Forum and responses talking about a U2 connector. Does it seem likely that a faulty U2 connector is my problem or could it be something else?
If it helps, I’ve been keeping my iPhone plugged into USB 3.0 ports on my PC a lot lately and about two days ago, my iPhone got atrociously hot while it was plugged into one of them.
Edit: So it’ll actually charge until its powered on. Once the iPhone is done booting, the charging stops.
Edit 2: I got the device off of Swappa, so I don’t know if it has any history of repairs, but going by the answer to this question, I think that by using the USB port on my ThinkPad, I damaged the charge circuit on the logic board: My iPhone won't charge unless turned off
Is this a good question?
