I have searched all the threads I can find and can't find an answer so please forgive me if this is a common problem.
To make a long story short I had to replace my LCD and then the digitizer stopped working. I did a factory reset which solved the problem but then when I tried to install my backup I messed everything up and nothing was working. I could no longer connect any computer to my phone using several different USB cables. All my google services were not working along with my proximity sensor and light sensor.
I was able to get a fenny rooted stock rom to install using Mobile Odin Pro and I seem to have most of everything working again except the USB port.
I was unable to connect to a computer or charge. After trying everything I could find online including factory resets, *#0808# settings, USB debugging mode, I broke down and ordered a new USB port which I installed into my phone and I am having the same problem with the new port installed.
When I plug my phone into the charger it does nothing however if I turn the screen off and wait about 3 to 5 minutes the LCD will light up and indicate that it is charging and then the phone takes a charge. If I use the phone while it is plugged in it will never indicate that it is charging, I have to power the screen off for several minutes. I have tried a second known good battery and I have the same issue. I have tried two separate factory chargers which both work fine on my wife's S4 and neither work properly with my phone.
When I plug it into my computer I do not get the normal message to select MTP or camera. using the settings recommended on *#0808# of USB of AP and USB Settings of MTP + ADB.
If I use *#0808# and select CP under the USB tab and then plug the phone into my computer I hear my computer instantly make the sound it usually makes when you plug a usb device in but nothing else happens. This same computer works fine with my wife's other Galaxy S4 and I have tried this on three separate computers with the same result so I don't think it is a computer or usb cable issue.
Is there a way that I somehow deleted drivers or a file on my phone that controls the USB port? I am unable to attach screenshots on this post for some reason so below is what my about phone screen shows. Is it possible I have the wrong kernel or radio installed that could be causing this issue?

I would really appreciate any help someone can give me. Thank you in advance. If anyone is local to Rhode Island and willing to help me out in person I would be willing to pay you for your time, I just want to get this to work as I use my phone for work and need to be able to transfer files to my computer.
