Battery says charging but remains at 1% after digitizer replacement
I replaced two ipad mini digitizers. These were the kind you have to solder. I used a stereoscopic microscope which made things a bit easier.
But it turns out that one of them will not charge afterwards. It shows that it's plugged in with the icon in the top corner and it doesn't say "Not Charging". I'm plugged into wall (not PC) using original lightning cable.
Digitizer was not working and so it was on when I opened it. When I got to the battery push connector, I made a stupid mistake of using my metal tweezers to disconnect and I saw a tiny little arc. This happened to me once before inside an ipad 2 without issue so I didn't think anything of it. Should have learned from my previous mistake.
At this point I am stuck, so I need your insight. Do you think if I replace the battery it will do the trick? I'm short on time, customer is losing patience with me.
Some tips when soldering the digitizer, a little solder on the IC board's pads goes a long way. Also, on either side of the digitizer flex there are little square holes that allow you to line things up. If you tap them with your iron, the plastic will burn up and it becomes very easy to line things up. I kept it lined up with Kapton's tape directly onto the table underneath the field of view of my scope.
Thanks for your help,
Is this a good question?
