My controller won't charge on its own. I have to hit the power button to make the screen turn on, insert the cable, it'll charge for less than a min then turn off and no longer be charging.

Would this indicate a new port needs to be installed?

Either damaged port. And possibly dirty. Have you also tried using a different cable? Or also a different charger brick

If you get it to work with new cable orblock try taping the cable into the port so you don't have to remove and reinsert.I tried the cables with the magnetic plug but the insert kept falling out.Good luck.

I went the way of the magnet plugs. I dread screwing up the port. I find it excellent. Draw are the charging is much slower even plugged into the proper charger. It also exposes (granted a bit) that plug because the rubber cover doesn’t fit over it. As I enjoy bad weather flights so I’m hypervigilante about entry’s for water. Maybe I should just use my reading glasses to see what I’m doing instead my old semi-brail method of connecting to port. Lol.

Sorry for late response. . . It seems the issue occurred when the battery was stuck on 96% and just turning off when trying to charge as I've explained. I bled the battery and it charged all the way back upto 96% then turned off. . . So the issue isn't it won't charge but will only charge to 96% 🤣 what a ballache.

I'm having a similar issue, of course one day before a job. It will charge for a few seconds and then just turn off.

So what are we thinking? The battery is old and needs to be replaced? Or the port is bad? Or both?

I reeeeally don't want to have to buy a new controller but that may be what I'm facing.

I had a controller that only went to 97% or so but worked for a year+in that condition.Oddly,when I charged it with an external phone charger it went to 100%.Worked ok for 3 years before it wouldn't charge beyond 50% but would stay at 50% when flying with it plugged into an external phone type charger.
