Hi My name isXXXXX hope i can help you

May be a small reset will help. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds. iPhone will automatically restarts and return to normal. If it not restarts after holding the button for 10 seconds, hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button until it get turns off and restart itself. Try to charge now...

Now it is just showing me the battery picture briefly flashing with a little red and then it goes off. It doesn't appear to be recognizing that it is conntected to the charger.

Sounds like there is no charge left on your iPhone, do a reset again and charge it for 30 minutes. Then turn on your iPhone. Let me know...

Still nothing. Is there a way to clean the inside where it connects? It just doesn't seem to recognize any type of chargine device at all

No easy way to clean inside without opening iPhone which will void warranty, may be its a hardware problem. Since we tried reset, different chargers and still working, it'd be a hardware issue. So Please take it to the At&T or Apple Store, If your iphone is under Apple care, they'll give you a new one or you have to pay to fix it.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
