Had the same problem found a site(can'tfind link now) that recommended taking the plug end of the charger and bending the contacts. I bent mine out and twisted the top out just a little on each. Started charging just fine.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
