I have an old Moto G4 that I would like to use to listen to podcasts only. I plug it in and it shows that it's charging.

But no matter how long I leave it in, it doesn't charge. I've tried different cords and get the same result.

Can you disable usb debugging and see if any change?

Restart it....

Try charging with the phone fully turned off.

How old is the battery? Have you been using it like that for many many cycles?

AccuBattery is a great tool for analyzing batter health, once you do get the charging working again.
 
Thanks for your replies. I've tried all the above solutions with no luck. There are YouTube videos showing how to open the phone and check the contacts but it's really more work than it's worth for an old phone like this. Thanks again.
