Cannot charge iPhone 3G battery

My iPhone 3G battery will not charge. It maintains its red 10% level no matter what I do. I tried holding the round button under the screen down for 5 seconds while charging (hooked up directly to the USB port on the CPU, here in the US) - no joy. I have also tried charging with the wall plug here at home in the US. In the Beijing airport yesterday I charged it in the floor outlet - could this have done something? (I am at home now in the US) If so, what now?

My iphone 3g will not turn on, will not be detected by the computer, and i cannot tell if its even charging


Try holding both buttons, the round one in front of the screen (home button) and the one on top (lock button). Hold both buttons pressed for 10 seconds, the screen will flash and your iPhone will reboot. Connect it to the charging cable and wait for a couple of minutes so the iPhone has enough charge to turn on again.

My iphone 3G just shut off on its own & it will not come back on when I try to trun it back on. Does anyone know more or less what I can do to fix that?


Is it completely charged? Plug it in and charge it overnight.

If it is charged, these steps may help:

Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.

Reset


To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a 10 seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears


More resets:

Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.
