I think my OG DROID blew up my charger.

    I replaced the digitizer in my DROID 1. It seems to have fixed the screen issue. However, I plugged the phone in to charge afterwards and it stopped charging after about 10 minutes. I heard a pop sound. The phone seemed fine, so I opened up the charger and a transistor had blown up.


    I also was prompted to do an update and it actually blew up during that process, though I don't know where in the update/reboot process it was. Now I am afraid to plug it in to a different charger.


    What could I have done inside the phone when I reassembled it to cause this? I am assuming something with the charger circuit being shorted and causeing the charger to over heat?


    I'm afraid that if I try again, it won't kill the charger, it will kill the phone.

    Nobody huh? I'm wondering what I could have done. The charger is soldered to the board, so I couldn't have bent a pin or anything.
