Can I replace my own Huawei Mate 30 Pro charging port?

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro, smartphone that was launched in September 2019 is a smartphone that comes with a USB Type-C port that can charge your phone quickly and transfer data efficiently. However, this port may not work properly for some Huawei Mate 30 Pro users, who have faced issues such as loose connection, intermittent charging, or no charging at all. These issues may be caused by a design flaw in the port, which makes it wider than the USB input and lacks support. This makes the USB cable unstable or disconnected from the port.

Besides using the USB Type-C port, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro also supports wireless charging using the Qi standard. This means you can charge your phone without using any cables, by placing it on a compatible wireless charging pad or mat. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro supports wireless charging up to 27W, which is faster than most other smartphones. Wireless charging can be convenient and easy to use, but it may also have some drawbacks, such as slower charging speeds and increased device temperature compared to wired charging methods.

๐Ÿ“ŒReplacing the charging port on a Huawei Mate 30 Pro smartphone

Requires careful handling and precise steps to ensure a successful replacement without causing any damage. Follow the detailed instructions below, along with the included diagrams, to safely replace the charging port.

๐Ÿ› ๏ธMaterials needed

1. Small Phillips screwdriver
2. Flat prying tool
3. New charging port assembly (ensure it is compatible with Huawei Mate 30 Pro)
4. Tweezers (optional)
5. Adhesive (optional, for reattaching flex cables)

๐Ÿ’ฅPrepare the necessary tools and workplace

Before starting the replacement, gather all the required tools and find a clean, well-lit, and flat surface to work on. Organize the tools and components in an easily accessible manner.

Power off and disconnect the battery:

To ensure safety, turn off the smartphone and disconnect the battery before starting any repair or replacement process. If you're unsure how to disconnect the battery, consult the user manual or seek professional assistance.

Remove the back cover:

With the help of the flat prying tool or your fingernail, gently insert it into the space between the frame and the back cover of the device. Carefully pry the cover upwards, releasing the clips holding it in place. Work your way around all edges until the back cover is completely detached.

Unscrew and remove the rear panel screws:

Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove all the screws visible on the rear panel of the smartphone. Keep the screws organized and separate from other components.

Once all screws are removed, gently pry open the rear panel using the flat prying tool. Be cautious around the edges and avoid applying excessive force.

Remove the bezel and motherboard shield:

Locate the charging port connector on the motherboard, usually located near the bottom of the device. Unclip the motherboard shield covering the connector by gently lifting it with a flat prying tool.

Disconnect the charging port flex cable:

Carefully unplug the charging port flex cable from the motherboard connector. Use a flat prying tool or tweezers to gently lift the connector latch, allowing the cable to be easily disconnected. Avoid using excessive force or pulling on the cable itself to prevent any damage.

Remove the damaged charging port assembly:

With the charging port flex cable disconnected, carefully remove the entire charging port assembly from the frame of the device. It may be adhered in place, so use a flat prying tool to separate it without applying too much pressure.

Install the new charging port assembly:

Take the new charging port assembly and align it with the slot in the frame. Gently press it in place, ensuring it fits securely. If needed, apply a small amount of adhesive to hold it firmly.

Reconnect the charging port flex cable:

Carefully connect the charging port flex cable to the motherboard connector, ensuring a snug fit. Use the previously lifted latch to secure the cable in place by gently pressing it down. Be cautious not to damage the cable or connector while reconnecting.

Reassemble the device:

Reattach the motherboard shield over the charging port connector by pressing it gently until it latches securely. Place the bezel back on top and ensure it fits smoothly before proceeding.

Secure the rear panel:

Align the rear panel with the frame and press it firmly to reattach the clips. Ensure all edges are properly aligned and secure before proceeding.

Reinsert the screws:

Using the Phillips screwdriver, reinsert and tighten all the screws that were previously removed from the rear panel. Ensure each screw is tightened appropriately but avoid overtightening to prevent damage.

๐Ÿ“ฒReconnect the battery and power on

Carefully reconnect the battery cable and secure it in place. Once complete, power on the device to confirm that the charging port replacement was successful. Test by plugging in the charger and checking if the device charges appropriately.
