@tel37: If you have tried multiple cables and the issue has persisted, then this suggests that there is an issue with the charging port itself. if you head to the Samsung Members app > Get Help > Interactive Checks > USB, does this return any errors? Have you tried checking the USB port for any dirt or debris that might be affecting the connection? If so, try cleaning it with a soft bristled brush to see if this helps at all.

Sorry to hear that, @tel37

if you would like to arrange for the device to be inspected and repaired by an authorised engineer, then please contact our Help Desk via the link below, where an advisor will be able to look into your available options. Alternatively, as a workaround, you may wish to explore your wireless charging options, such as the Convertible Wireless Charger (https://www.samsung.com/uk/mobile-accessories/convertible-wireless-charger-pg950/EP-PG950BDEGWW/), which you should be able to source via a reputable third party retailer.
