Why isn't my iPhone powering?

Text:

Here's the story. I changed the mid-plate on friday and everything went well.  On saturday, I reopened it but when I popped the battery, I saw a little spark.  I was scared, and like I thought, it wouldn't power on ... But I plugged it in the wall and it worked again flawlessly. '''But here's the deal''' : Tonight I was installing Zagg shield (screen protector).  Maybe 10 minutes afterward, I answered a text, placed my phone down and when I was wondering why I had no answer, I noticed my phone was dead.  Thought it was the battery, but nothing was showing.  Tried plugging it in the wall but still no luck.  Checked the battery using a checker and it shows the battery has power.  '''Something happened though ''': ''Maybe 15 minutes ago, I though my phone was fixed because the white Apple appeared.  But it got stuck there for 5 minutes, tried hard reseting and now nothing works... ''

TL;DR

My phone isn't powering.  What could be the problam and how can I fix it ?

== Update ==

Could the solution used in the installation of my Zagg screen protector cause a problem inside the iPhone ? Like a short or something ?

== Update ==

Any other solutions I could try out ? stuff I could check ?
