    I have a recent problem with my 3-months old OnePlus 8T. Since a few days ago, whenever I plug in the phone to charge, the normal dash charge animation appears. After the sound notification, it disapears, but a new one appears right away, together with lighting up the display and the sound. It keeps on repeating until I unplug the charger. The only thing that helps is to to restart the phone. After the restart, it stops for about 2 chargings and the problem reapers again.

    I have tried several outlets in different rooms and since I have bought an extra charger and cable, also changed the adaptor and cable. This doesnt fix the problem.

    Can anyone advise me on how to fix this?

    Thank you :).

    dont poke with force while using any sharp object if your device is 3 months old as you say you can see dust or lint in the port in good light....clean it carefully !

    Try charging with a power bank to check if the same problem persists.... otherwise probably it is either the connection port or some hardware issues.

    Either a

    USB c port

    problem. Sounds like your connection is unstable died to any of the said parts in the link fail.

    Try another charger / cable combination.

    If the problem stays test a connection to a power bank and/or PC - if it continues your usb c port may be defect.
