1st Gen. iPhone won't charge

My 16g 1st generation iPhone won't charge. I have tried the USB port on my Imac, the wall charger and my car charger as well as chargers at the local apple store. Since it is off warranty, the Genius bar folks were of no help. The battery symbol in the upper right corner never shows the "charging" mode.

Is this a good question?

Thanks. I will give the battery a shot. Since I have already upgraded to a 3Gs the logic board doesn't make financial sense. If the battery works, perhaps my wife will want the first generation phone.
