Check the USB /dock connector for dust/lint/bent pins. Clean with soft brush then try again. If no improvement then I suggest installing a new dock connector- this will also cure the speaker problem

How do you change a dock connector?


Sorry Mayer, you're right the link would be helpful... Am on my iPhone and it's painful scrolling pages- when will they make an app? The sooner I get back to my mac the better!

Here's the link for the part, iPhone 3G Dock Connector on how to do is also on the link.


+ thanks for the link Polly!
