Yoga 3 USB Adapter/Charger defective

2016-02-25, 4:49 AM

I bought a Yoga 3 at the end of 2014.  Progressively, the USB charger adapter stopped working with mains outlets.  It reached a point where only two, flat-faced outlets in my house would work.  Now it won't work even with those.  The only way to be able to use the adapter is to hold and press it into the outlet at a slight angle, or else place a heavy piece of furniture or brick or the like against it to press it into the outlet.  In other words, it is now useless and I cannot use my Ultrabook at all.

 

How do I get this fixed?  I would take apart the adapter myself, but it's not clear how to do that.

 

Thanks.
