Fixes for LG G7 ThinQ Charging Blocked Issue

Check the port

The LG G7 ThinQ is water and dust resistant as claimed by LG. However, it is water resistant only to a certain extent. It means it can easily manage water splashes. If you are getting this error message after your device was exposed to liquid. There are chances that some moisture might be present in the charging port which is triggering the error message. In that case, leave your phone in dry air for around 24 hours. Now check for the issue.

Another thing you can do is examine the charging port with the help of a magnifying glass to check for any dust or debris.

Soft Reset

Soft reset might work in solving the issue you are facing. There is nothing wrong in giving it a try before you proceed to more complex methods.

A soft reset can be performed by pressing and holding both the power and volume down keys together.

Switching to Safe Mode

This error you are facing with your LG G7 ThinQ cold also be caused by a third party app. So to check whether a third party app is to be blamed or not the best way is to reboot your device into safe mode.

  2. Tap and hold the power off option from the list.
