Why is one of my Skullcandy earbuds stopped charging?

The charging port on the earbud can be damaged if it receives too much stress. Also, the charging port can become loose if exposed to too much heat or water.

In either case, the phone will not charge the earbud. In the case of a broken charging port, this can be fixed by opening up the earbud and soldering down a new USB cable connection to the board.

If you suspect that your Skullcandy earbud has a faulty charging port, take it to a professional.
