Default Charging issues

My other half told me her phone wasn't charging so I had a play about, tried different chargers etc and she appeared to be correct.

Trying to rule out a problem with the USB port or the battery, I plugged it into the PC to see if the PC recognised it as an external disk. It did and it is also now charging . I tried a few different cables, and then tried it with the charger from my handset and still, via the PC it's fine, but it will not charge from the mains

I'm toying with reverting to stock and RMA'ing or sticking it in to the local mobile repair shop to see if they can sort but before I do, has anyone else experienced this? She's happy to charge via the PC from now on, but I think this is the start of something bigger and it will eventually stop charging altogether.

Any suggestions or potential fixes I can try myself before I decide whether it goes back to Orange or in for repair would be much appreciated.
