Replaced Battery, Phone turns on but will not charge/connect to PC

My iPhone 4s would not charge and died. I cleaned out the dock connector, which looks fine, and wiped it down with iso-propyl alcohol and still no charge. I replaced the battery with one from ifixit and the phone turns on but will not recognize being plugged into the Apple wall charger or (using an Apple Cord) being plugged into my PC. How do I know if its a dock connector issue or something else like a problem with the logic board.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Look for corrosion. Try replacing the dock connector first as it's cheaper.
