That was the problem fixed it myself in 2 min. Clean toothbrush 91 % Isapropal. Make sure you you not soak the phone and it is totally dry before powering up.

laTake a flashlight and look at the dock connecter. If you see any Green on the dock connecter try to scrape it it off with a plastic spudger also use 91% alcohol with a q-tip to try to get corrosion off. If all else fells take it to apple to try to get a new phone. Hope you bought the extended warranty.

I would try and reset the phoone first by holding down the home and power button

Before buying any new parts, soak all old parts in 91% isapropal alcohol and clean the parts with a toothbrush while soaked for 30 minutes, then start scrubbing parts(keep the screen out, just soak the brush with isapropal alcohol and clean that way, don't EVER do the battery), also, be careful how much pressure you use, use enough, but not too much

if that does not work, you will have a more serious problem more often then not, but before you call it quits them try one or two more times first, it may need to be repeated

I have exactly the same problem. Can you recommend a site for advice on removing the parts to be cleaned?
