Nokia 7.1 charging port failure

How do I fix a faulty charging port? This is not a cord issue. I bought new cords and they work with another phone. The faulty port appears to be a documented equipment manufacturing issue with Nokia. I have to angle the cord’s USB connector just right into the phone port to get it to charge. To keep the connector in that critical position, I have to firmly secure the plugged phone between a wall and a weight. It is very touchy and the bending eventually destroys the usb connector on the cord. The problem is getting worse and today I cannot get it to start charging at all despite trying all positions and cords. I fear it will go dead. I tried contacting Nokia and I think they won’t take responsibility for this defect and the phone is less than 1.5 years old.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Had same issue, eventually plucked up courage to buy replacement charge port and a heat gun.

15 minute job, all good.

58 years old, watch a couple of Youtube demos and dive in, turn off phone, remove sim/sdcard before applying heat!
