Default USB 3.0 Charging port corrupt?

Hi.. i purchased a note 3 from someone .. the original 3.0 USB cord and charger base is there but when i go to charge the phone, it doesnt take the charge until i pull upon the end of the charger where the USB meets the bottom of my phone..

it looks like something may be missing there or something isn't tight.. can you take your note 3 back cover off and let me know if yours loook like mine? I was going to purchase another 3.0 cord but i dont think it's that... the regular chargers work in my phone and that's what i've been having to use

I'd appreciate your help. some pics i just took are below

Try and tighten the 2 screws (half turn) on either side of the usb port, and see if that will help. I just had the same problem and that fixed it.

It's the cable itself, there has been known problems with it, every one I know with note 3 says there cable no longer works, I just use regular 2.0

I'm having trouble with a 2.0 cable too. Maybe the stiff, heavy, white cable damages the USB port.
