L380 Charger Connecting And Disconnecting

2019-07-15, 10:31 AM

My L380 has worked fine up until the last week. Now when I plug the USB C charger in sometimes it goes between connected and disconnected in the bottom right coerner. In addition, the screen brightness changes. This continues until I plug the charger. After some time of plugging and unplugging and messing with it, it charges like normal. This happens with all three chargers that I have tried.
