Both USB-C charge ports blown in the same spot: How did this happen?
I’ve replaced the charging port and fixed the laptop, but what’s interesting, is how pin #7 is blown on BOTH ports. Is this pure coincidence, or is this a sign that the Charge Cable is not safe and blowing ports?
The charger is definitely NOT Apple
And it kinda looks bent
I looked at the generic charge cable under the microscope and on one side, there’s 3 in a row that don’t have pins, so I guess that means it’s missing a pin, right? I don’t have a microscope camera yet, so I drew a diagram:
That’s not normal, right? They’re supposed to match, but opposing, right? My question is: How can a missing pin on the cable fry the charging port pin? Did the absence of the pin make the electricity try to jump across and fry the charge port?
