    When I try to charge my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet, I have to wiggle around the cord before it connects to charge. Happens with any cord. I'm guessing I have to replace the power charging port?

    Sorry, thought it automatically logged me in. Should've checked. Let me try blowing dust etc out of the port. Would it also explain why it takes long to charge?

    No, unless you're employed to repair cellphones and tablets, you don't have to replace the port, the repair shop you bring it to has to replace it. Cleaning up a tiny PC board and opening the holes, then resoldering a port is not a DIY project. You might be able to do it. Or you might end up with a non-working tablet and not want to pay about 5 times what it's worth to get it repaired (assuming that any reputable repair shop will repair it after you caused some unknown problems with it).
