Replace iPhone 5 audio/power button cable, phone won't turn on


Today I replaced my iPhone 5 audio/power button cable, phone won't turn on afterward.

When I plug in the phone, every 5 seconds it will make a noise; Plug it into computer will show the iPhone. But screen wouldn't turn on.

Any suggestion on how to determine what went wrong?

Sounds like you haven't seeded the lcd connector properly make sure it clicks down and press it on both sides then dead centre so it's just not plugged in on one side..

It turned out that I broke the cables (LCD and Front facing camera) when I first opened the phone. Replaced the LCD screen and the camera fixed the issue. This turns into a more expensive project then I anticipated.

Be VERY CAREFUL when you open your phone.
