the USB cable for damage and dirt, especially at the ends. Then try
using the wall charger, as this will provide greater power input than
Broken charger or USB cord
Try using different chargers to see if you may have a problem with your charger or cord.
Obstructed/bad dock connector
the 30-pin dock connector at the bottom of the iPhone for dirt, lint,
and damaged pins. Clean out the dock connector very carefully with a
tooth pick or soft toothbrush. If the dock connector is broken, you will
have to replace it. God bless you
Marite, Thanks for providing the pictures. You don't know how much that kind of input helps! In looking at the pictures you've sent, the only way to repair this is to replace the connector. It can be fixed, however you need to be aware that the cost to obtain a part as old as this plus the labor involved will probably be much more than the unit is worth.
One thing that you might want to try is to buy a USB hub and plug it into the working port. A USB hub is a kind of extention cord that will give you several USB ports.

All USB ports have four leads attached. Tthe outside rails contain the positive and negative voltage of 5V and the two inside rails is the transmit and receive. I would take the interface apart and replace the USB connector. Maybe Radio Shack or another electronic shop would have the same USB connector. See:
This is usually going to be a part replacement problem. the black piece is part of the connectors. and backs up or guides the connectors. you can go to your local computer parts store such as frys, or an electronics parts house. and buy the connectors unless it is one that is attached to the motherboard in the back of the computer. if this is the case and you do not have enough usb ports, then you have to get an external usb hub. usually a powered hub is best.
May be a bad USB cable. Check the connector on the end that plugs into the pc, something inside may be broken preventing the connection. Sometimes the flat plastic piece inside (white or black) breaks loose if you forced it into the usb port or felt resistance when inserting it. If it came with software, you may have to reload it especially if you are using Windows 98.
it depends if the port has come off with out damaging the board if its damaged the board its more harder to replace the port. sometimes you are luck and its just broken the slider as its tin base. and it can rip, but you cannot tell until its been opened and looked at.
Simple. Just solved it with advice from this site. If you see any of the gold prongs touching the side (or possibly each other) then find a thing tool and try to hook the gold prongs so they point direct upwards. how bad they get bent doesnt matter, just get them all standing up and not touching the sides. you probably cant use the port again but atleast it turns on.
