Phone stuck on the charging icon but wont turn on or charge..

My Wife's iphone was about to die so she plugged it into the car's charger and the phone died. Not sure y. So when we got home i took a look at it and noticed that her phone was stuck on the charging icon. Red Battery and so on. So i plugged it to my pc and nothing happened. I plugged it to the wall charger and nothing happened. Still stuck on the charging icon. So i did a reboot by holding the power and the menu button and the iphone restared but nothing changing. Still was telling me that it was charging but nothing happening. When i disconnected the wire it told me it needed charging. After looking around on google, some people took their iphones to an apple store and most got a new one. Most of the people were afraid that they would get caught cause they JB their phones.
Another person suggested this and i tell you, he deserves the credit.

SM86: ( Finally I thought of something:

I placed in the dock and turned it on, once again giving me the annoying battery screen. However, this time I actually restarted my computer. My rational was that if the device was connected while it was booting up the computer had to recognize it somehow.

During my computer's boot sequence the iphone appeared to had turned off, I didn't touch anything though. After windows loaded, I noticed that still the iphone was black as if it was turned off. Thinking that it probably ran out battery once again, I went to turn on the iphone while still having it on the dock (during this whole time I had not removed it from the dock).

And alas! I saw the apple symbol and my springboard showed up!

It is now currently charging (I can see the charge increase on the screen, when I lock the screen, it is now halfway and green) on my usb dock.)




---------- EDIT ----------

I really hope this helps. If i did something wrong on the post let me know.

it happen when your battery is completely ran out, just plug your phone and give it sometimes to charge, there is nothing wrong with it

I gave it 3 hours and nothing.. so i did the above and that was the best fix compared to sending it back to apple.
