I know this has been asked before, at least similar symptoms, but I did not find the answer to my problem.
I had a perfectly working 100% 3G, but the power button was sticky, so I took it apart to clean it out and fix the power button. after putting it all together, the computer does not recognize the phone (multiple PCs) and it says it does not charge, but if I leave it plugged in, it actually does charge, the phone just does not show the charging icon. I can not restore because the computer does not recognize, on DFU, recovery or any other way. I changed the charging port to 2 different new ones with no luck, so it is not the charging dock. what else can I try?? I did not break anything on the dissembling and I am not missing any screws. this is not the first iphone I open, but it is the first time I see this happening

Make sure the pin by the do not remove screw is touching the metal bezel.
Make sure the #4 clip is on good.
Plug it in to the wall plug for aleast 10minutes and see if it comes on.

I tried all that. the phone comes on even when plugged in to the computer, it is just not recognized by the PC and even tho it charges, the charger indicator says it is not charging. I never see the lightning on the battery but if I leave it plugged overnight, the battery is full the next day

you are 100% sure that the dock connector flex is connected? This sounds kind of weird.. :/ Well, you could try to install a new dock connector to check if the dock connector suffered any damage during the disassemble..
