Hi everyone, I need some help please with this iPhone
 
It's the 3GS 16GB, it does not power up, and does not charge, and it is not recognised in iTunes, it is basically dead!
 
this has happened after a cheap copy chinese wall charger was used to charge the phone, this is 100% sure because it has done the same to my wife's iphone!!
 
I have tried to press and hold home and power button, also tried, holding the home button and connect to iTunes, but Nothing!!
 
Anyway, I have opened it up, dismantled it, tested the battery with a voltmeter and it shows 0.12V, a good battery should show 3.7V
 
So I have bought a new battery and I have tested it before fitting, and it showed 3.7V on the voltmeter,
 
After fitting the new battery, the iPhone switched ON, battery showing 40%, but it still does not charge and is not recognised in iTunes, also, the slide button on the screen does not work, so I can't get to Home screen.
 
After 1 hour, same problem, iPhone does not switch on, does not charge, opened it again, tested the new battery and it shows 0.14V, so it is drained!!
 
Can someone point me in the right direction please?
 
What should I do next?
 
Thanks in advance
