Hi. Sorry for the delayed reply, A number of issues could be involved though all boiling down to adequate voltage.

  1. Non-OEM or native charger or USB cable is being used
  2. The mini-USB port is failing and must either be serviced or replaced
  3. The main system board has a defect component requiring to be replaced or serviced

In the extreme, a failing battery may be your culprit. A firmware reload may also help if the battery's charge advance though you get no charging animation on the batter icon.
