Default Phone only charges while turned off

My HTC One will only charge when the phone is off, not sure at all why this is. It was unlocked and has the stock rom on it, but it fails to recognize the device completely, when it is turned on and plugged into the wall or a usb port on my computer.

The phone however, will be recognized via fastboot and will charge either through AC or USB. I successfully was able to fastboot and push cm 10.2 on it. Still remains the same problem as before.

I cleaned the port out of the bottom to free it of dust and debris but no luck.

The phone itself will have a solid red charging light for 6 seconds, then it turns into a dim red light for 8 seconds, the led then turns off for 5 seconds and then the cycle repeats. The phone can only charge to 99% and never will show a green light for it fully charged, even after 2 days on the charge.

What the heck is the problem? I have read too many issues in regards to this and HTC has no acknowledged this one bit.

Do I have to replace the USB charging port? I ask that since my bootloader is unlocked.

Seems that on a clean restart and on airplane mode, the phone can't even hold a day charge from 25%..

I ended up selling it and going back with my LG OG pro. Warranty it, you will not find a solution as I wasted hours upon end looking for one.
