Phone won't charge

---The backstory
My phone had a bad battery since a few months, but I could use it while plugged.

But a few weeks ago, the battery started to grown, and it even pushed the screen out a little. That's when I knew I had to swap the battery, and so I bought a new one. While I waited for it to arrive, a new problem showed up: the phone would stop charging without any warning. But just disconnecting and reconnecting the charger solved it.

The frequency at the first day was low enough to not cause a headache, but it kept increasing till the phone would refuse to charge at all.

---The problem
Then as the new battery arrived, I exchanged it and turned the phone on without problems, but the phone would still not charge, not even a the led would turn on or the phone vibrate.
I searched a bit and saw people saying that you have to let it charge for 8 hours, even if its not giving signal that it is charging, and so I did, but nothing came out.
I've also read to try charging using the PC USB, and for sure it does work, for single second. The phone vibrates, as if it started charging, but nothing more, no screen on, no LED on.
What should I do? Is it worth trying to exchange the charging port?

  • Ha ha ha or ka ka ka, your backstory and the problem is a result of your backstory.
    Are you mad? ''But a few weeks ago, the battery started to grown, and it even pushed the screen out a little. That's when I knew I had to swap the battery, and so I bought a new one.

Really this is the time change the battery and and keep use it while you wait for new one? Come on, man, if you not realised it yet you have baked the USB charging board if no more...... You lucky as on eBay I have seen them for few bucks.
    Also you could burn your house, dude! Some common sense......................

    Well, I kinda knew something could go wrong, but I needed to use the phone this badly. Thanks for the reply, I'll be swaping the charge port to see whether the phone works again
