    But are you using the one with the correct mAh output. I have multiple Nokia chargers and some charge my device and others don't. Might want to see if a higher output charger works with your 920 or not.

    You can also check the charger/cable against another phone to rule out a charger fault.

    Is it the same cable you are using between PC/phone and AC/phone? Might just be a bad cable...

    First apologies this question was also posted my me, but i dint check whether i was logged in or not.
    and regarding the cable i have been using same charger since DEC 2014 when i bought the phone and its perfectly alright.
    I also have a lumia 532 (dad's phone) also connected to that charger but no luck.

    Funny part happened today after posting, while phone was connected to laptop.
    Its showing the charging symbol but not charging, meanwhile i shifted it to wall charger and again it showed connected and not charging.
    And out of curiosity of good old Nokia's i thought to restart it. So i switched off the phone and now its not turning on although battery being 44% and not charging form laptop also....:(

    Sounds like a bad port...

    Inspect it for lint or other debris. Sometimes there is a small bit of something in the port that stops connection. Also look for bent pins.

    Hopefully it is lint and no repair needed.

    I hope not as, today in the office i was able to charge my phone from pc and it was charging as usual. While coming i was checking whatsapp and some news and played a game for few mins. And when i was curious to check the battery it all started. Its still connected to my laptop but not charging.

    Small update: today morning, I kept it charging with wall charger and after around 20 mins it shows battery charging symbol. I thought it's fine and switched to fast charging and whop it's gone blank again.

    Did you inspect the port? Did you blow any canned air in there to clear debris out?

    Finally i think i have figured out what it is.
    Its actually a loose connection of battery, as phone has fallen many times in office and might be the connection has loosened.
    Because when i pressed the phone tightly for some time when charger was connected, it started charging.
    So now i just check and keep pressing my phone hard....it this goes the same way soon i can break my phone (Screen is already broken).

    [Solved] New Phone.

    OK... All kidding aside, that sounds like a good diagnosis.

    You could try opening it up and reattaching the cable. Might as well get a screen and tools first. Good Luck.

    No actually I am planning take a new one for myself or for my father. As already my phone screen is already broken so repairing it makes no sense. But I can use this as my test device for windows 10.
