I had this problem today. Visual inspection with a flashlight but no magnification didn't show much except that the socket hole was not as deep as it should be. I took the flexible plastic toothpick out of a Swiss army knife and gently scraped the bottom of the socket with the tip. Then I tapped the phone on a piece of white paper and saw some debris (dirt) come out of the hole. I continued this and after I made a good start, a lot of debris came out. Finally, I pulled out a large piece of pocket lint.

I suspect that if a little dirt gets in the hole, pushing the plug into the socket compacts the dirt into a flat layer, and if enough dirt gets in there, the plug will no longer connect.

The solution is to clean the socket out gently with a flexible plastic tool, such as the toothpick in a Swiss army knife, so that you do not damage the pins. To prevent the problem the phone should be kept in a clean pocket, or in my case, where my pockets just aren't clean, I will keep the socket covered with a bit of gaffer's tape when not in use.

these series of Galaxies are very prone to this, i had it happen 2 times within the first 4 months, what happens is when your phone is in your pocket. Bits of material and grime build up in the charge port just a tiny bit at a time. every time you plug it in. it packs to the back of the port until you find yourself pushing harder each time. the port is dark and deep, so you cant see it. dont get sucked in to paying big bucks on this. theres a little tool you can get to scrap it out. just be carefull. the first time it happened to me the phone repair shop i know did it for free in front of me in about 3 minutes.
