USB Connection Problems on Huawei Phones: How to Fix it

Among the most common problems that we can find with our mobile, many of them have to do with the connectivity section. One of the most common is when the terminal does not recognize the USB . Huawei phones are also not safe from this problem, whose solution is many times easier than it seems.

It is not uncommon that when connecting the mobile to the USB it does not charge or is not recognized by the computer. On many occasions we blame the mobile, but some adjustments in the options of the device or the mere fact of carrying out a series of checks, will make us find the problem to be able to solve it.


USB problems

Although as we say the causes can be several, the common denominator is that our mobile does not recognize the USB connection, that is, we can not even charge the device or connect it to the PC to transfer files.

USB port is dirty

The first check should go to the side of the microUSB or USB Type-C port itself, depending on the model of our Huawei mobile. One of the most common reasons why we may have a problem with the USB port is that it contains dirt.

Dust usually accumulates inside, to such an extent that it can cause a plug that prevents proper connection. To do this, we can clean it with a pin or other fine utensil, and insert it into the port to remove all the dirt.

Check charger and cable

We must make sure that the problem is neither in the charger nor in the cable. For this we will have to disconnect and reconnect them, in addition to alternating it with some other cable and charger to rule out that this is not the problem. It is also advisable to use the original charger and try another different outlet.

When connected to the computer
