Default [Q] broken inhouse charging

Charging my SGS becomes impossible now after 4 years. Although ist shows the charging symbol, my device doesn't charge the battery. Can anybody explain the following screenshot? I run nightly cm11 from pawtip in the most recent nightly...

Most probably a hardware issue. You might want to get it to the nearest Samsung Service Center and get the USB Port (or whatever you call it) replaced

I tried to fix the USB port. I teared down my mobile until I got the USB port in my hands and put the pcb under my microscope. I saw a corroded connection from the port to the motherboard. But I don't have a proper solder unit to repair that. So I tried with my big fat soldering iron....and killed one connection. I managed to repair that, so I have the same faulty mobile as before. My next try will be a wireless charging mod (with parts from a palm mobile).
But I bought a spare I9000 already for 50 Euros......
