You might run out of power and need to juice up the device, but suddenly, the Poco M3 Pro is not charging. Errors like “not charging” might show up, or simply the charging indicator is not showing up. This could be a very stressful situation to be dealt with, and it is important to know some hacks on how to fix it. 

There are few things to consider on why a Poco M3 Pro would stop its charging function. You might need to check the charging accessories. That includes the charging cable and the charger adapter. Carefully check the charging cable and the adapter for any signs of breaks or unusual bending. 

These hardware accessories could be easily damaged if you keep twisting the cord or plugging the adapter inappropriately. They could also be affected by the wear and tear syndrome. If you just got your Poco M3 Pro and it’s quite new, make sure to check for any signs of factory damage on the charging accessories. 

Dusts could also get inside the USB-C charging cable. Check for any signs of dust/dirt blockage on the charging cable. Aside from the cable, the charging port could also be blocked by dust and dirt. Make sure to check the port before you plug in the charging cable. 

You should also check the power outlet and see if that is causing the problem. Try to plug a different power adapter, like a light extension, and see if that works properly. If it does, then continue troubleshooting your smartphone. But if the power outlet is not working, try to look for a different outlet where you can plug in your Poco M3 Pro. 

If you have checked all of those things above and your device is still not charging, then it is time to perform the procedures below. They are suited best to address software-related glitches that may be hindering the charging function to work properly on your Poco M3 Pro.

Good thing is that the Poco M3 Pro has a built-in cleaner app. It removes cache files, clears memory and scans the files on the system for possible threats. To do that, simply look for the app called Cleaner on the device. Wait for it to scan and tap on Clean up
