My iPhone 1st generation does not charge

Hi, I recently bought an iPhone 1st gen from eBay. It worked fine for a few months but now when I plug it in it says charging please wait, and after a bit it boots up. After arriving at the home screen, it says low battery and does not charge any further, and it loops in that way continuously.

Thanks.

It looks like this may be a similar issue? My iPhone 2g is not turning on or charging

Try a hard reset "holding home and power buttons whilst plugged into a power outlet" then try cleaning contacts. If that doesn't work you may need to replace the battery.

This answer also suggests simply trying another charging cord wont turn on or charge

more than likely either needs a new battery or charge port as its an old phone
