iPhone Says It's Charging, but Red Won't Change to Green

My iPhone completely ran out of battery last night and I plugged it in to the AC charge it about 4 hours ago. The battery indicator still has the battery at very low red and it has not moved. Do you think I should just take this to the genius bar? Thanks for your help.

take it back... Always remember not to drain batts all they way down were it can't even boot itself sometimes batts have hard time to charge.. But take it back maybe you have a bad batt

This happened to me once. I restarted the iPhone, after which the battery indicator worked fine again.

I also had the same problem and a restart fixed it for me as well.

Lightbulb ..

I had the same thing, just wouldn't charge, and itunes wouldn't let me sync it.
I had updated it about a month before so it had cydia on a first 'gen iphone, so restoring it meant i would have to add it on all over again, and i didn't want to do that, so this is what i did...

left my iphone on charge for about an hour or more
sync it, well try to, and then eject it from itunes
take it off charge, turn it on and off a few times until it came up that my phone had been charged (full) and itunes let me sync it again!

hope i helped
