iPhone is dead after replacing battery and button

History

Hi,

I just followed the instruction on this website on how to replace the battery and power button of my iPhone 5.

I wrapped up everything, and now my iPhone seems to be completely dead (doesn't start, doesn't charge, is not identified by a computer).

I tried opening it, making sure I didn't miss anything, and closed it again. Nothing.

Please help.

Thanks

What happens if you plug it in to a computer? If it is recognized, then that would point to the screen connection. Is it possible that the screen is not connected properly? Make sure that your cables are clicked firmly into place.does it do anything if you flip the vibrate/silent switch. If it vibrates, then that also points to the screen connections. Is it possible that you shorted out the battery somehow? I would suggest testing the output voltage of the battery?

Good luck!

Thanks for the response. Nothing happens when I connect it to my laptop, and it also doesn't vibrate...

You may have made a static shock on the logic board, I did this once and resolved it by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. Perhaps your screen flex cables are loose or damaged. Always wear antistatic gloves and switch the phone off before opening it up.

Thanks. Well, I tried reconnecting the battery, still dead...
