Title:

Surface only works when plugged in after battery replacement?

Text:

I did a full housing, screen, battery replacement for a Surface Pro 5

It turns on only when plugged in tried 2 batteries now still the same issue.

I tried force restarting it and doing a driver update still not working

My next thing to try would be desoldering circuit board off OEM battery and soldering it to After-market not sure if the risk of lighting the battery on fire is worth it.

Any Ideas?

Device:

Microsoft Surface Pro 5
