    DIY Sony Xperia Z Desktop Charger

    Hi chienline..i'm attaching the pics of my dock ;-) .....like I said ...your's is super sophisticated. The first pic shows the contacts inside the box touching the pogo contacts on the phone.The second pic shows the set up I made with the usb cable using simple glue tack to hold it in place...i bent the copper connectors to ensure they were touching the pogo connectors on the phone. The third pic shows the phone inside the box..I cut a small section at the front of the box so that i could peek and see if the connectors were touching or not. (As I said it was simply a trial...nowhere close to yours).

    Thanks again for your reply and suggestions. Firstly..how did I break the port ;-)...it's my wife's phone ...maybe that explains it ? :-D .I'll post pics of how I made my "dock"...i tried to make it a temporary one till I had perfected the technique ...will post pics tomorrow. Your's is super sophisticated in comparison ;-D. For some reason the pins seem to be discharging the phone instead of charging it...maybe I made a mistake somewhere...also I was a bit cheap and used the wires off a broken mouse...i should have probably just cut up a USB charging cable which is cheap anyway. But the good news is that I took the phone to a mobile repair shop today and they replaced the port for me (for around USD 9)....not too cheap but the job is done and the phone is charging.

    Tks chienline...yes I did make sure of the polarity ...but the problem appears to be that the phone got totally discharged (which is supposed to be a bad thing for Sony phones as per several forums on the internet)...till yesterday if i simply touched the pogo pins with the wires it showed me an amber charging light but today when i finally assembled the dock there was nothing.I'm using the original charger that came with the phone and i'm checking that there is a charge output by connecting a small toy motor I have ...the motor runs when i touch the terminals with the wires.I've simply left the phone in contact with the pins now in the dock and hope that it'll show some sign of life soon .I get the red flashing light when i touch the power button which indicates that it is completely d...see more »Tks chienline...yes I did make sure of the polarity ...but the problem appears to be that the phone got totally discharged (which is supposed to be a bad thing for Sony phones as per several forums on the internet)...till yesterday if i simply touched the pogo pins with the wires it showed me an amber charging light but today when i finally assembled the dock there was nothing.I'm using the original charger that came with the phone and i'm checking that there is a charge output by connecting a small toy motor I have ...the motor runs when i touch the terminals with the wires.I've simply left the phone in contact with the pins now in the dock and hope that it'll show some sign of life soon .I get the red flashing light when i touch the power button which indicates that it is completely discharged.

    Thanks for the idea ...My phone lost it's charging port...it broke off in the charging cable......i tried to make one with a plastic pencil box...unfortunately the battery got totally discharged by the time my "dock" was functional and it doesn't show the charging light....but I've left it in the dock for a bit...lets see if that works.
