Droid fails to charge via wall socket

...but it will charge using USB connection to the computer. I have no idea what happened...one morning it was charging just fine via the power brick, then a few hours later it wasn't. No trauma or anything. Anyone else had this problem? Once in a while it will work when plugged into a socket, but then it will randomly stop working (not as a result of jiggling it or anything physical like that). I bought an extra battery a while ago and it has the same problem.

This is my third Droid. ): Love the phone, but if it keeps being so undeniably lame.....

EDIT: Extra notes:
-Unrooted, never been rooted.
-Tried it in several sockets - it's not the socket.
-Original charger/cord.
-White charge light does NOT turn on when plugged into wall socket, but does when plugged into USB.
-Have had issues with freezing too, recently, where the base (home, back, etc) lights are on but screen is black and power button does not work, so I have to take out the battery and put it back in. Otherwise it operates just fine.
-Isn't getting too hot (I'd read that overheating might be a cause for phones not charging)

Re: Droid fails to charge via wall socket

soft reset it while its plugged into the wall charger.... when it boots back up it should recognize the connection as a charger...

Re: Droid fails to charge via wall socket

Bad news bears - it doesn't reboot like it should when it recognizes that it's plugged in. Just stays off, and when I manually turn it back on, still no charger recognized. ):

Re: Droid fails to charge via wall socket

does this really need to be simplified???

take it off the charger and power down..... plug it in and power it up on the charger..

Re: Droid fails to charge via wall socket

I've tried it both ways, on and off the charger, to no avail. What I was referring to above was the tendency of the phone to normally automatically reboot when you "Power off" while plugged in (versus staying off, as it does when it is unplugged), and how my phone no longer does that. It doesn't auto-reboot when "Powered off" while plugged into USB, but since I don't normally charge it via USB, I don't know if it should. But, at least it charges that way at all, yeah? =/
