Taking it to Apple is one of my fears. No telling how much it will be to replace if they do find the problem. Its way out of warranty and I don't have the budget to replace with a newer one.
And ufixit.com doesn't sell that part anymore.

For what it's worth, I have the same problem. It started a few days ago while on a trip.
Now, charging is very slow (without the lightning bolt or even with a "Not Charging" message over/near the battery icon, tried three cables which all work with iPhone and 2 chargers + the computer), iTunes doesn't recognize the usb connection (I tried three cables which all work with my iPhone) but wifi sync works.
I went through almost the same steps as you without luck.

same problem here..ipad 1 one was fine..I did upgrade to ios 5.1.1 about a week ago...so I;m thinking it may be a software issue. Charges fine when completely powered off. Have found a ton of post about this, but no fix. Especially since the ipad 1 is out of warrant it seems as if people are just buying new ones.
