Did it, in spite of unable to remove 2 batt screws due to stripping them. I wish there was a guide to prying open the case, it was very scary.

I see you have tools for removing striped 4.5 mm screws!

I found this guide extremely useful, although i need a new port i didn't have the time to wait for delivery so i followed the guide hoping if i cleaned the part of any dust etc it might charge again temporarily and it did! It wasn't dusty but i did notice the flat plate inside the port wasn't straight so i wedged a flathead in to level it out. I think that was my problem.

Grateful i haven't had to spend unnecessary fees on repair.

Thank You!!!

Thanks! The flat plate inside the connector was bent over to one side. I bent it back like you did and now it works fine. I was ready to trash it. Thank you, thank you.
