Why is my screen stuck on the red battery charge screen?
i took my iphone apart to make a repair to the plastic cover. i put everything back together and it was working just fine, but later the same day it died and sense then the only thing that comes up on the screen is the red battery charging sign when i plug it in.
Did you replace the battery? If so - try reinstalling the original battery. There are more poor quality batteries available than original high quality.
If the battery symbol appears with the lightening bar underneath this means that the dock connector appears to be ok but if replacing the battery doesn't work it'd be worth trying a new dock connector.
There is a good chance that the housing assembly you bought has been sitting in numerous warehouses for the last several years. There is a good chance that the battery dried out.
If you got a voltmeter, you can check the voltage on the pins. Should be around 3.8 volts dc or so, with the left pin being ground. If you plug in the charger and measure, you should see the voltage going up if it is low.. If it stays the same, the battery won't hold a charge, and a replacement battery is needed...
The first thing I change on any iphone or ipod that won't turn on or charge is the battery
If li ion batteries are deeply discharged, internal damage will occur. Usually there is somekind of control circuit to prevent deep discharge, cutting of the load if voltage drops to a certain point. But li-ion batteries loose charge over time and will die if not charged regularly.
