Z1 4.4.2 (.757) Won't charge via USB

Hi guys,

I've been running Z1 4.4.2 (14.3.A.0.757) for some months now and have been working around this issue by using the connection points + adapter to charge my phone. I thought i would come and see if there had been any updates but .757 still appears to be the latest, so my hopes of upgrading to fix are pointless.

When i plug in the standard Sony cable into the phone via the connection under the flap; the phone will constantly "wake" - If i try to turn the screen off it will constantly turn back on. The phone will not charge.

Phone charges without issue using the connectors on the outside.

Summary-
  • Phone won't charge direct by cable (standard wall adapter)
  • Phone charges fine using connector points + adapter

Any ideas?

Then is the USB port defective, send it via warranty or something.....oor.....use the Dock DK31 to charge the phone aand FTP Pro for transfer files, at last a good solution.

EDIT:
Or don't waste your money and just use the wall for charge if you need juice.
Derp. That huge oversight. Sorry about that.

The problem is that the OP cannot charge it via USB with wall charger so he have to use the magnetic cable or dock.
