Thanks for your response. I have tried charging through PC, wall charger, and docking charge with no luck. I verified that my PC recognizes that something was plugged in but "does not recognize the device connected". When I temporarily replaced the dock connector with the old one, I was able to charge again. Appears that I received a defected dock connector.

Check your battery contacts with the cable plugged in. See what voltage you get at the dock connector and the contacts. Possible that your charging fuses is not working, bad battery or bad power management IC. If you voltage is greater than 3.7Volt it should charge. Start off with a new battery and take it from there.
