I replaced the battery and the charger point. It was working until the battery died. Now the phone wont even power when I put it in on the charger. So Now I am back at square one.

Same issue here. Phone came in dead. Put in a new battery and it charges fine. However if you let the battery die it will no longer charge. Tried several known good batteries and charger ports. I read that there is a component called the U2 IC. It is a 36 pin chip. When this fails you will get the symptoms we are experiencing. Looks like a pretty advanced repair. Hoping someone else has run across an easier solution.
