It would say it's plugged in, not charging. Funny thing is this doesn't happen when I charge my phone through the sp4 usb port, but I don't want to hog my usb port when I could be using it for data.

I tried all the techniques you listed above including the cleaning , but no change. Both fail with some regularity.

I had the charger out and it had gotten to 10% so I went to plug in the charger and it did not work. When you are ready to argue, stop there if you can, and continue… If your Surface Pro 3 or 4 is not plugged in, then plug it in. Turns out, that may perpetuate the problem.
