Your iPhone 4 won't charge on the wall or only on your computer? Have you tried plugging it into a different computer?

I would still try a different cable. It's helpful to list what you have tried. How did you clean the port?

If all else fails, put it in DFU mode and restore.

Try connecting it to another computer to see if it will recognize it.
