I would guess that you battery is fine, it is either your charger is not working or worse case your charger socket on you phone is damaged. Try connecting your iphone to your computer via the USB port and charging cable, if your phone starts to charge you know you have a problem with the plug side of your charging cable which is where your transformer is. Be aware that if your battery is totally flat it could take several minutes before you hear the beep from your phone to indicate that it is charging. If that doesn't work it could be your charging lead that is damaged so try charging with a different lead. If still no joy then you could be in trouble as the charging socket is soldered to the mother board and could be an expensive repair so fingers crossed it is only the charger that is damaged.
Sounds like the socket is faulty, probably broken the supports inside the case. Only way to fix it is to take it apart and either repair the socket or fit a new one. It could be quite expensive depending on how much of the laptop needs taking apart. I repair them quite often but am in the UK people pay anything from 60 dollars to 150
The power socket on a laptop is usually soldered directly to the mainboard. Sometimes the socket is on a seperate smaller daughterboard or on a cable that connects to the mainboard, but usually this is not the case. Opening the laptop to perform this repair can be very trick and time consuming. I would certainly not recommend an amateur attempting this repair as usually the entire board needs to be removed, the socket de-soldered and a new socket soldered in place. Not for the faint hearted! If you wish to provide laptop model details I may be able to provide the screw locations etc and disassembly guide.
The best way to fix this is to open the case, strip both wires back to expose the wire, slide a shrink wrap insulator over each individual wire, and then solder the wires back together. When connected, slide the shrink insulation down over the solder connection and then use heat to shrink the insulation around your repair, then close the case back up.
Bought a faulty F20 off EBAY with a broken USB socket.
It seems like a common failure mode.
The one I had had sheared directly of the internal board and their was no PCB track left for re soldering.
I eventually managed to repair the unit by buying a new socket and attaching fine wires which were hard wired to other parts of the PCB then using epoxy glue to refasten the socket. I would consider it a difficult and advanced repair. (Its like micro PCB surgery)
Opening the case is relatively easy. Remove the screws and then use something like a blunt table knife to gently slide between the two case halves until they part bit by bit.
