Try a different charger on your phone, if that works your cable needs to be replace or charger with cable replaced, if a different charger does not work then your phones USB port is damaged and needs a service repair.
There are multiple micro connections so it may connect to your PC in download mode but if the connections that link the charger are not working it wont charge.
So try a deferent charger and a different USB cable if neither make the phone charge the USB port on the phone needs to be looked at by a technician to repair it.
