Red X appears since replacing charging port!

Replaced charging port on my Samsung Tab A, 8". Red X now appears. One of the tiny prongs inside my charging port was bent-up somehow, and then it broke off because it was a tiny piece of copper. I replaced the charging port (had to solder it) and then the red X graced me with it's presence. I'm wondering if I maybe didn't make a good enough connection somewhere? I would think it wouldn't charge at all if there were a bad connection somewhere. Not amused. I've had it barely 2 months. I've tried all of the different charger options. I have the original cable and adapter that came with it. So...please, please, please...don't waste your valuable time explaining what charger amp I need. Any thoughts or solutions? Thanks much!!

P.S. I apologize if this was already addressed by someone else. I couldn't find anything and honestly, I've spent too many hours reading other forums!
