Unhappy [Q] Usb port issues

hello ,



let start off by saying i liked this phone until i started having problems with it ..


so a few months ago i after the usb port not working as a (media device) with cm10.1 &10.2 for a year delt with it ... i have no mtp or ptp options not even upon plugging it in dose not even acknowledge it just beeps then windows 7 usb device not recognized until i re flashed jb 4.1 and it worked again windows 7 seen it as a media device and i was able to tether until a few days ago and it with no warning it will not let me see it kies dose nothing just says usb device not recognized and dose the same as it did with cm10.1 i have flashed and wiped a few times no change i would like to tether and get my files on and off my wife has the same phone no issues ..??? but what i don't understand how can it work well for a few months then not ..? can the mount points in the phone get corrupt ? seems like its just the phone because my wifes tethers just fine mine wont she is stock jb .. i have a rooted jb .. thats it can the usb port just fail .?


when i plug it in it just goes strait to charging on pc and beeps thats it .. tried different usb cords and computers the same thing

The USB port could be damaged or dirty. What happens if you plug the cable into the phone, apply gentle pressure on it towards the back of the phone (Or the front) and then plug it into the computer? Does it start to work so long as the cable is held? If so I would guess the USB port may have developed some bad solder joints.
