Another option is to connect your device via any cable and perform a hard-reset. This can be done by holding both the power and home button, release when you see the White Apple logo.
this also did not work.


I would try and stick to official Apple cables, or reputable distributors of iPhone cables.
but the ones that are official, they don't work at all.

My last suggestion would be to clean out your dock on the device itself. Use alcohol, in small amounts obviously to clean the dock connector. This should clear your problem.

If it doesn't, I would look at either replacing your dock connector. It's pretty cheap to do, you can get app the gear off eBay.

Does it appear to be holding a charge? If so, put it in DFU mode and restore.
