Crud in the docking station?  Does it work better if you connect it via the cable?
Crud in the iphone's dock connector?  Have you tried carefully cleaning it out?  The socket often gets filled with lint, dust, etc.  It can help to use electrical cleaner, and/or compressed air...be gentle, though.

Try re-downloading, and then reinstalling, iTunes.
