Suddenly iphone 2g does not charge on charger in power socket, or Mac USB port

My little baby dropped the phone yesterday and today the phone does not charge. I tried plugging it into different power cords in the house, into the USB port on my Mac. Nothing works.

When plugged into Mac, it gives this message 'This device is currently drawing too much power. The hub to which it is attached will be deactivated."

iTunes does not recognize the phone. When plugged into power socket, nothing comes up on screen.

I tried holding home button, not working. I tried holding both Home button and the 'On/Off button' on the top right, not working.

Any solutions, really appreciate it.

Sounds like the drop has critically damaged it, unfortunately.

iPhone giving message 'This device is drawing too much power'

This phone was dropped many times before, so it's kinda weird it gave this message now. Anyone ever experienced this same issue? Guess if it's a hardware, nothing can be done...

Just wanted to make sure all possible solutions are exhausted before I throw the phone away.

Usually this is an indication that the battery has died. Do you have any charge left?

Get an upgrade or get a battery replacement.

oh okay, thanks a lot for your help. Just one more question, are there any self-replacement kits available online?

Don't throw your phone away!

I am having the same problem on my 3GS. I think the problem is with the cable, not with the phone or battery. Your case might be different because it started happening after it was dropped, and mine was out of nowhere. Did you try buying a new charger before getting rid of the phone? That has been my solution. I found the cable on Amazon for >$2.
