I've had the same problem and have come to the conclusion that the life of a cellular phone is determined by the availability of fresh or recently manufactured batteries.
Acording to Wikipedia, Litium Ion batteries have a limited storage life. Idealy they should be stored in refrigerated conditions at 40% charge, however If they are kept at room temperature, then two years is about the longest time they can be stored before being un useable. Very fiew have a manufacturing date on them, so given the age of this phone, the likelyhood of picking up a 'dud' is very high. The dealers aren't aware of this & will sell you old stock at full retail prices too!
Pity though since this was a lovely model. The manufacturers should have an obligation to supply things like batteries for a longer time after a model is discontinued. Even the pirate parts suppliers only seem to make batteries for current or large volume sellers.

Just clean the connectors and all will be fine

I agree with "Silly girl", I had exactly that problem, first it charged intermittantly (I was suspecting a bad battery) and then it stopped all together. The connector is surface mount, i.e. soldered to the surface of the PCB. Open your phone (4 torx screws) so you can see the connecgtor legs on the PCB, plug in your charger and wiggle. In my case one of the 3 legs became loose and I could see it move. I was able to solder it back on. Good luck!

I fixed a similar problem with my K750i (3 month old battery would be drained every 8 hours or so) by downloading and installing the latest firmware, using Sony's own 'Sony Update Service? software, which you can download from their website.

If you tried with a new bat and no dice, try a different charger as well (if you decide on buying instead of borrowing its a cheaper option for a first check ). Still no joy? Then my guess is that it?s the connector in the phone. good luck, don't break any legs :]
