[Q&A] Redmi Note 4 4/64, model 2016102 general roblems with USB connection/charging/tethering

My device Redmi Note 4 is model 2016102.

I experience major problems with usb port during charging, tethering and phone recognition by the PC.

Some times everything is OK.

Some times when I connect the RN4 to the computer it starts charging but disconnects after one second, after another second it connects again, after a second again disconnects and so on.

Some times it charges from the PC and when the battery reaches 94% it stops charging. Then I can activate the USB tethering also.

For normal charging using the original power charger I use USB cable which is not a data cable. It is only for charging and then I do not have any problems for now.

I have all drivers installed on PC.

Please advice how to solve the problem.
