Failure to charge could be anything from a broken charger or cracked lead up to it being dropped in the bath and has just been dried out.

Without looking it would be purely guesswork, legally you have no responsibility whatsoever, morally maybe a little, so just ask to check it, see if you can find out the problem for them.

Choice is entirely yours.

thw leads always break, i have even had a charger blow up.

another thing to check is the connection terminal at the bottom of the phone, these can get very dusty so a good clean with some electrical contact cleaner and a toothbrush helps.

If/when you call in mention Wiki and get them to write it on the receipt so I know who it is, I'll try and sort it for you, best price possible.

update on iphone 4s.
It was still under guarantee so i took it to the apple shop and they opened it up very easily too easy the man said.surprise surprise the inside of the phone has nothing holding it in place all the screws are missing and there should be a cover over something forget what he said, it also has some water damage.
And as the phone has clearly been tampered with it is going to cost me to put right.
Morally i did the right thing taking the phone back but wont do that again if i ever sell it again that is.
Thanks for all your help on here much appreciated

You got a rough deal there, Zelda. As long as you're 100% sure it was fine when it left you, name the buyer.

Is it now working or do you need a screw set fitting to keep everything in place ?

There are a couple of "covers/shields" in the back that need to be removed when you work on the phone, but anyone half competent would put them back in afterwards.

If you look down the earphone socket (and in the middle of the charging socket) it has water sensitive paper that turns pink (it's normally white) when exposed to moisture (this voids any warranty from Apple), there are also a couple inside, but you have to open the phone to see these, which also voids your warranty if they can tell it has been done.
