Fixing possibly damaged USB charging port
I seem to be experiencing this issue.
I think it most likely is a mechanical issue. (The phone seems to react to USB cable movement; what makes it difficult to determine is that sometimes moving the cable doesn't help until rebooting the phone.)
After some investigation, I found that there are suggestions to replace the charging port. (One auction—already over—is here.)
I guess I'm answering my own question already, but in that case, this post might be useful to others—especially since it seems that this is one of the most common issues. Actually, I would like advice on whether my diagnosis is right. And assuming it is, maybe someone who's already done the repair could write a guide on how to do it.
It looks like a straightforward change, but I'm a total noob.
Это хороший вопрос?
I have the same problem. Looks like my usb connector is damaged.
Wondering how this went...I just ordered a similar item and will embark on this sometime next week.
Device charges *some* of the time but is not recognized by computer.
I'd welcome any tips from anyone whos completed this replacement.
Thanks in advance!

I am waiting for my board to arrive, I bought on ebay but the customs on Brazil are veeery slow. As soon as it arrives I will try to replace the damaged one.
Ok, keep us updated...Mine should arrive sometime next week as well. If I can't relock my device with the one thats on here now I'm going to try and replace it with the new one.

After looking at the replacement parts, I found that there are at least 3 types of the USB flex, and they seem to even have many revisions. The one that I linked to was for the GSM model and won't work with LTE one for example. I was unable to find the exact revision my phone and I don't want to break my phone further by installing potentially incompatible one, so I decided to just service it instead.
The closest that I seen on eBay were LF-A G 1143 and LF-A G 1144. Mine is LF-A G 1149.
