@pichlo That is not a silly question at all. You made me to start question why I soldered out the connector and were there really reason to do so. My tablet were not charging properly, in specific position of male connector, device would fully charge. Otherwise battery would drain despite OS charging icon.
PCB is OK.
So I felt stupid while I read @mrsellout comment. Though I did try before multiple USB cables but I did not found enough tight one.

So my logic replied: replace the damn connector.

Have to point there is not much room for working with a soldering tip as other components are too close.
I have to wait for parts and solder paste to arrive from Ebay sellers so I can do my repair round 2.
