The other day out of the blue my Treo 700P would not accept a charge. I wiggled the wire a little and the red light would come one for a second. Now I have it charging, but it's been charging for almost 7 hours and it's only at 60%. Earlier when I checked on it, it said 84%. I haven't unplugged it. Is it more likely the connection or the battery? Thanks in advance!
I'm assuming you have problems with syncying also. What I do is turn off the Treo, take out the battery, and unplug the the cord from the USB port. With everything unconnected clean the contacts in the treo, on the outside of the treo and the plug on the chord with alcohol on a Q tip. On the battery only clean with a dry cloth, no alcohol.
Put it all back together and see if you get a better connection. If this doesn't work it is probably your battery.

I had the same issue -- charged it for days and still red light flashing. I was ready to break it open and see if I could replace battery. Then I looked on the opposite end of the charger and seen a little round hole thingy. I put the end of a pen in there and pushed it twice and -- the red light went away . Plugged the charge in and steady red then purple and now blue. Looks like that is a reset ..Try it -- it worked for mine.
Either the charger port on the phone is faulty or the charger itself. Try a different charger if you can and if this works, the dock is faulty, if it doesn't then its the phone. Pretty simple repair and most Treo repair centres will be able to do it.
there is a hard reset button under the battery cover on the side where the stylus goes. it should be able to restart your device fully and completely, is some cases you may need to leave the battery in and charging for at least a day or even use a friend's battery , because some glitch certain devices just refuse to boot and also to charge the battery if they somehow recognize the battery then in my case I use my wife's treo battery to be able to get mine jumpstarted. whenever I experienced this after a while I was able to switch back to the original battery and then the device was finally charging that one. weird but true, so we switched to android based devices since. but I remember this issue clearly.
Finally found this solution! It is a connection issue at the bottom of the phone where you would plug in the cable to hotsync your phone.
Put in your hotsync cable and wiggle it around really good and it will fix the issue. Do this with the battery out and then pop it in until you have fixed the issue. Took me a few tries as I was worried about how hard to do it, but no problem!

Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.
Verizon 700wx:I had the same problem. With little or no movement, the phone would go from charging to not over and over. At home with it perfectly still it would charge maybe 1/4 in 6 hours. Same problem with 3 different chargers. With the battery out, I dipped a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol squeeze out excess and jammed it into the charging port on the phone. Put the battery back in and oh **** nothing. Took it back out and let it dry for a few minutes and were back in business. No more charging problems at all.
May be a little risky, but warranty was up and what did I have to lose. Anyway good luck!
