Fried the charger port and USB
Hi there,

I hope someone out there can help me.

I just fried the single-pin Type H barrel power connector (and adjacent standard USB port) by absentmindedly inserting my Chromebook charger (that has a very similar pin).  The popping sound and bright red flash from the USB port with a burning smell told me that something was wrong Confused

The USB C socket seems ok so I can charge the device but it gives off a high pitched buzzing sound that I don't get when I use the Type H barrel lead. I also think it charges slower but that may be my imagination.  Is there a way of swapping out the charging part so I can fix the problem? It's not the end of the world just annoying that I did this so stupidly.

All help gratefully received,

Is this the Pinebook Pro? If so, this is the "PInePhone" Pro forum.
Find me in the forest, when I'm at my lowest. I don't really think you should continue..
