This might be hardware but I'm not sure so thought I'd ask.

Went to plug in to charger at home last night - noticed it didn't charge. Wake up in the morning though and the battery hadn't dropped (or raised)

At work I have a different charger and same thing seems to be happening.

I powered off my phone though, removed battery, put back in, and plugged in. This is where it gets strange - instead of showing me a large battery charging which is what use to occur it turns on immediately.

I checked Software Updates and everything is up-to-date. It is a Samsung Infuse.

update

WHILE PLUGGED IN:

Entered * # * # 4 6 3 6 # * #* to display battery info:

what phone is it? I have heard of some Motorola phones doing this. –  Ryan Conrad Jan 10 '13 at 16:40
    
@RyanConrad A Samsung Infuse (see the last 2 words of your namesake's question). –  Izzy Jan 10 '13 at 16:51
    
@Izzy Not sure how i missed that... –  Ryan Conrad Jan 10 '13 at 16:58
    
made the phone bold for you and added some more info –  Ryan Jan 10 '13 at 17:14
    
@Ryan: Have you tried any other cables? Also, are you using the AC adapter that came with the phone? –  Cornholio Feb 21 '13 at 8:12

What sticks out to me is that your battery status says "Not charging" Instead of discharging. I feel like your phone may recognize that the charger is plugged in, but may have some error in the battery/phone itself. I feel like your phone may just be translating the charger power directly into the phone itself, and is not able to charge the battery. If this is the case, it IS a hardware issue. Sorry that there isn't much you can do.

At this point I've bought a wall charger and second battery and have been swapping. I'll leave the question though so if anyone does have an actual solution. –  Ryan May 16 '13 at 0:40
