Clean iPhone charging port very well with toothbrush and isopropyl alcohol. Connect to Wall Charger and Reset hold both home and power buttons for about 20 seconds until the iPhone begins to respond. If still problem, replace battery. If still problem, replace charging port assembly with flex cable.

Make sure your phone us turned off, and using an alcohol swab or q-tip and isopropyl alcohol gently clean inside the charging port. Typically debris will come out either black or a dark color on the q-tip, and you will know if it needed cleaned. If it is not dirty, then it is the battery or the charging port that will need to be replaced.

take out the battery and put it back in.. if that doesnt do anything try seeing if there are any screws that are loose in the back of the phone.
