Possible, but less likely: Your charging port is bad. Good news, it's cheap and relatively easy to replace by yourself.

Also possible, and more likely: Your charging IC is bad. Good news, the part is cheap. Bad news, it requires microsoldering skills and (expensive) equipment which most people don't have, and can be costly.
