I've had similar problem, and found that if I jiggled the charger prong, that it can make a connection. Sometimes, the connection is dusty or just not hitting the receptors in your phone.
Hope that helps.

Make sure that you are inserting the charger perfectly strait into the phone so that both metal connector snap into place, at work we have a data base of different phones (not the V551) but we have the V600/V300/V330 and all have known issues for not taking charge as people do not attach the charger correctly. If this isnt the problem next step would be to try another charger, if you have a friend with a Vxxx series phone all chargers are pretty much the same, if you have had the phone for less then 90 days most carriers will warranty you charger and sometimes the manufacturer will warranty it for 1 year. If its a problem with the phone then the carrier and manufacturer offer 1 year warranty. If there is a cingular store in your area you could also try going there to test your battery in another V551 to narrow down exactly were the problem is.
Close the flip screen. Unplug charger from the wall and the phone. First plug in phone jack into phone BUT make sure to push it in a bit sideways. Not too much it can break the pins but just with a little angle. When you hear good click than plug charger unit in the wall.
Try a different battery. If that doesnt work, it may be your charger port. Take an old tooth brush, turn off the phone spray alcahol on the toothbrush, and scrub the port on the phone. If that fails your charger port needs to be replaced. Check with your provider about the warranty. If its not under warranty, check my profile and we can help you for sure.
