Possible outlet short

I have an outlet in my daughters room that seems to have some kind of problem. We've had three (3) different cell phone chargers (all different brands) stop working after being plugged in to this outlet.

Other things like lamps, fans, radios, all work just fine.

I'm concered there's a short or something that's causing the phone chargers to fail. I'm not sure how to proceed and I don't like calling for repairmen unless I have some idea of what I'm getting into. The only other idea I have is to buy a surge protector and use that instead of the outlet plugs.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
