Hi - my FP3 is failing to charge. I’ve tried different charging cables, doesn’t help. I plug it in, and it starts charging then just stops, saying its not able to charge, so I have to keep unplugging it and re-plugging it back in again. sometimes it’ll only do a few percent before stopping.

Best check for debris first.
If you are out of warranty you can remove the bottom module and dismantle it for a better access to cleaning.
