If your charger isn’t causing the problem, you will need to check whether your charging port is working. Using these steps, you can test the functionality of your charging port:

  • Verify that the charger you are taking is working.

  • You are in good hands if the red light on your port starts blinking.

It might be a worthwhile idea to clean your charging port with a small brush if the red light isn’t blinking. If the red light doesn’t blink after you’ve followed all the steps, you’ll need to get a charger hub or repair the charging port on your Insta360 One X2.
