I have a similar problem.

No matter what charger I use, the phone randomly switches between charging and non-charging state.

Is this a problem with software or the port.

Just to clarify, I can hold the phone upside down, hanging from the charging cable, or wiggle the charger and it will continue to charge. The above error is just random. This leads me to believe it is a software or battery problem.

Mine makes the plug and unplug sound randomly, sometimes it wakes me up at night and its not plugged in.

This happens to mine too. I'm on the stock unbranded firmware and haven't rooted our updated. This problem randomly appeared about a month ago.

I've just started seeing this problem now in the past few days.

When I unplug the charger, either the battery charging icon stays on, or the "Battery full, unplug charger" notification stays there.

The big problem is if I turn off the phone. After shutdown, the screen stays on showing two different icons (changes between them every few seconds). One icon is a battery half full or so, the other is an empty battery with a yellow triangle and a icon of a thermometer next to it.

When this happens, I can't turn on the phone. The only way I can turn on the phone when this happens is to plug in the charger, start up, then remove the charger again.

I'm on rooted KG2, XWKDD kernel. Bit worried about this, I'll try another ROM & kernel but I don't think it's software related?

It is discussed in this thread:

Cleaning USB port and in some times bending USB PCB downwards solves the problem.
