USB port on phone loose

The USB port on my phone, Galaxy A01, will not hold the connector on the cable tightly. This makes keeping a connection difficult. Can the port be repaired or replaced?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@hoser010 the USB port is actually on it's own Charging Connector Flex Cable Samsung part number GH81-18208A. Since we do not have a guide for this (hopefully you'll make one https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/new ), check something like this video to replace that flex.

This is the part you would need to replace

Thank you for the quick reply. I don't understand what a "connector flex cable" is. I watched the video you linked, very interesting. It showed the USB connector in the phone, which is where my problem seems to be. I have plugged several different cables into the port with the same loose result.

@hoser010 sorry should have left a picture. Anyhow,it is added. The part that is marked as Sub PCB is what you would need to replace.
