Pinebook Pro Stopped Charging via USB-C
#1
Hello everyone.

I'm having a problem with the charging on my PBP.  A few days ago, all of s sudden the PBP stopped charging via the USB-C port. I was down to about 39% of charge so I decided to charge it overnight using the same `USB-C charger I have been using all along.  When I checked the PBP in the morning, the charge was still at 39%. I have tried a different charge cable and still same results. The battery indicator on the PBP is indicating that it is charging, but the level never increases. Does anyone have any solutions or ideas? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

What does it do if you charge via the "barrel" port?

Thanks for your reply.
The Pinebook Pro charges correctly using the standard barrel jack charging adapter. I'm wondering why the USB-C charging all of a sudden stopped working.

Sorry to inform you but this is probably due to USB-C charging circuit fried.
This happened to many users using USB-C chargers.

Buy USB to barrel cable if you still want to use this charger instead of original.

Thanks for your reply. I was afraid that might be the case with the USB-C charging circuit being fried. I am going to check as see if any of the other USB-C functionality works. I think when I had the docking deck attached the ethernet and the hdmi out was still working . I'll check when I get a minute. Thanks again.
