iPhone4 WONT CHARGED! no thunder bolt no other explenation

History

hi! i hv my iphone over a year. yesterday, when i wanted to charge it and i plugged it in, it just not charged. no thunder bolt symbol no other explanation such as "not supported charge device" or somthing like that, just nothing, like it isnt charged. i tried the hard restart (pushing the lock button and home button together for 8 secs) but it still wont charged when i plugged it in. then i leave it with the charger still plugged on my phone for about an hour then i checked it again, the battery was increasing! but just like 2 percent and still no thunderbolt symbol. so slow! must i change the battery ? what should i do to fix it ?

oh i forgot to tell you something.

once, my phone goes off cause the battery is 0%, n then it shows like this n it charged normaly until like a minute after my phone turned back on. when it turned on, its not charged anymore, like i said no thunder bolt but it actualy slow chraged. like realy slooow. spent a whole day for fullfilled it

Edited by: adhit ( )

facing the same problem now.. did u find ne solution? also an interesting way to fasten to charging is to switch off ur phone and charge it.. it boosts to 100% in the average time, if not faster!! i observed this cos when it gets switched off since it reaches 0, it charges to 4% quickly nd den starts.. after switching on it discharges wen used even if plugged.. this kept continuing.. wen is charged it by switching off, it got 100% charged in 3 hrs!!

Take a toothbrush with a little alcohol and swab out the charge port real good to clean the pins on the dock connector. I fix a lot of them like this.

You could try to unplug the battery and re seat the connector.

Have you tried a different charger to ensure its not a problem with that particular cord or adapter?

Also, look in the bottom of the dock connector and make sure there isn't any pocket lint or dirt lodged into it. This does happen. Make sure also there are no bent pins or damage to the connector itself.

Hope this helps

Update

it could be the battery as well. If you can order one in and try it that may very well resolve the issue entirely. Now that we know everything is squeaky clean! :)

thanks for the respond, i did that, and also i try 3 diffrent wall charger n it still didnt work. :( i tried plug it in into my laptop, n also no respond. i already cleaned the dock, n im so sure theres no dirt anymore. the funny thing is it is charged but theres no thunder bolt symbol n also so freakin sloooooow! i left my phone with the charger pluged in for 1 day n it filled like about 95% from 0%. i think somethingwrong inside the phone or the battery.

adhit, just like Craig suggested, start by cleaning the dock connector properly, replace the battery, make sure the battery connectors are properly attached to the board. Worst case scenario, you have issues with the power management IC. check this video for a reflow and the image to see if the jumpers might help you out. Place jumpers across the fuses

i did what craig told to me.. and im sure the dock and the pin is now clear. so i have to change the battery? if so, that its the power IC problem. i cant solve that myself. and im sorry i dont understand with this jumper.. so maybe the best thing i can do is maybe i have to replace the battery ? so heres the funny thing,it does charged but it takes so slooooow like a whole day until it, well.. not ompletely full :/ thanks anyway for the respond :)

adhit,

Yes, i would suggest to change the battery. It is possible that this is the reason for the slow charging. If it is not the battery, take a look at the Power Management IC
