Phone charges only sometimes

Hi, I have this iPhone SE that charges every time when it’s turned off, but then it does charge only sometimes.

For example - phone is turned off, I plug the charger and it charges until 100%. When I remove the cable and put i back, it charges. When I flip the cable, it does not charge. Then I plug it again (the same way) and it starts charging again.

When I turn the phone on without charger it does not charge at all.

I have tried other battery and system connector, but it is the same. Then Tigris and Tristar chips were replaced, but still the same.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

First check to make sure there is no lint or dirt stuck in the charge port which is blocking the connection (you’d be surprised how often this happens), then try another cable, its possible the one you have has a burnt out pin or poor connection. If neither of those solve the problem then I would recommend replacing the charge port.

Hope this helps!
