Storage AC charging issues, USB charging works. Help?

Hi guys,

Google's got nothing on the subject, so I'm betting on xda's infinite wisdom.

Few days ago AC charging started to . . flicker ( charging -> not charging -> charging. . etc.) No water damage, no drastic firmware changes ( updated to monxdified 6.2 after the flickering had begun - no dice ), tried various chargers and cables ( which work fine on an Xperia Z ) with the same result. Moving the cable around does not seem to affect the issue so I don't think it's a connection problem.

When I plug the same USB cables I use in a laptop's USB - all good. Charging speed, transfer speeds unaffected.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Let me know if u need more info.

Thanks in advance

I had a similar issue of switching between charging and not charging. Was regardless of moving the cable around and happened even the phone and cord were sitting untouched. Don't remember if ac vs usb made any difference, but it continually got worse until I had to take it in under warranty. They just cleaned out the usb port and all was good again.

Thanx bro. Played around a little bit with a broken toothpick and a bottle of cheap vodka and it's charging for now. Maybe he just needed a shot

Hahaha... There are very few problems a quick drink can't fix
