Kenny, first I would replace the battery. Here is the guide for that, also, check the dock connector. Make sure there is no corrosion and or bend or broken pins. It is also possible that it is the PMIC and the least likely culprit would be the hard drive. Start with one repair at a time, change the battery first. Hope this helps, good luck.
