Plug it into an electrical outlet (not a computer or a car) and let it sit for a couple hours. If this doesn't fix it, press the sleep (button on the top right) button and the home button at the same time and hold it for 15 seconds. If it is charged it will show the apple symbol and reboot.
To charge the battery using your computer:

Try resetting it. Hold down the Menu and middle button at the same time until the screen gets dark.
If that doesnt work, Restore it. Plug it into the computer and click "restore" when it pops up in itunes. Please note that this will erase all data on the device.
I share the same problem - I'm worried it's due to routine wear-and-tear on the jacks, so the connections are no longer solid. I hate to think I need to get it serviced for this. Usually buying a new cable has worked, but that gets expensive too...
Anyone have a fix??
