Hello guys, i have kinda similar problem. Screen replacement on ipad air 1 went ok but after it ipda is acting extremely weird when it comes to charging. When ipad is on and screen is locked/standby mode then it wont charge, the moment i press home button or power button to wake the screen up ipad starts to charge. I even tryed to test it with new digitizer bc it might be something wrong with digitizer i placed...still the same problem. I am using voltage meter to check how much it goes in ipad and when screen is turned on ipad takes 0.91 - 1.20 A and the moment screen goes off i can see 0.00. Im thinking it can be charging port failure but i am not quite sure. Any help would be appreciated.

Look closely at your battery connector inside the iPad (or don't, because you can live with this problem). You will see that you have accidentally flicked off a tiny component at the battery connector. This component is necessary for the battery to communicate its 'gas gauge' to the logic board. Without it, the iPad will charge and discharge just fine---it will just never move its percentage. Despite whatever percentage the iPad shows, if the real percentage drops below 1%, you will get a boot loop phenomenon....the iPad won't 'know' to prompt you to plug it in, so it will continue to attempt to boot with no battery.

You can live with this, and just make sure to charge the battery regularly.

Or of course, your problem could be something else entirely....but I betcha I'm right :)

You are a life saver. I've been looking all over the web for anything similar to my problem. (iPad 3) Had a cracked screen, ordered replacement parts, was super careful, and put everything back together and this is exactly what happened. Battery must have died and it is stuck in this boot loop phenomenon. Only problem is, I can't seem to find this tiny component to flick back on. Could you explain where I could find this? I feel like I've looked everywhere. Unless my iPad doesn't have this switch. Your help on this would be absolutely amazing. Thank you!

iPad 3 does not have a gas gauge filter that is commonly flicked off like the mini. In iPad 3, a boot loop can often be caused by 1--tearing of the flex between the mainboard and cell board in cellular models. Or 2--If you pulled up the board off the battery, and it is not re-seated on the battery then you will see Apple logo then nothing. If you did NOT pull up the battery when doing your screen change, then this probably isn't it either. Tell us more (start a new questions) for iPad 3 and we can help you.

I have a similar problem with Ipad Air A1475. After screen repair, IPAD works fine, but I can't charge. The port recognizes the plug, but it never charges. Now it's completely drained and even though I have left it plugged in for an hour. I've tried a hard reset, but no success.

you can probably charge it if you put it in recovery mode. A usb ammeter will really help you to know if it is charging or not.

Hi Danny,

  • Double check to see if your new parts are good, make sure there are no signs that the ipad is not on other than seeing nothing.
  • It is possible that you may have damaged a couple of components around a connector, Please take a couple of high resolution, focused photos of the battery connector.
  • Other than that possibly the flex cable for the charging port, make sure its seated, and there is no physical damage. If you have access to a replacement I would try that.

Good luck

There is a connector at the other end of the flex cable that probably came unplugged. This usually will stop any charger recognition. Give that a shot first

Last week i repaired a ipad air. just as we do 3 times a day no problem what so ever.

Normaly i charge the battery before i give them back. But because the client needed the ipad i did not have the time to do so.

The client called me the next day and told me the ipad did not charge any more.

there also was no connection to the computer possible.

I told him this was strange because we never come in contact with the dockconnector ore the connector on the board.

but because we give service we would take a look at the ipad.

Problem was that this was the second time that there was a screen replacement and the first time it has been done by a other company so i wanted to check the ipad very carefully.

Then after removing the screen i tought about something i noticed before when i removed the screen.

one of the screws that hold the lcd connector was not in place. it was the screw on the right side between the to flexcables of the touch screen. i put i a new screw as we have those on stock. thinking of a mistake i made ones with a iphone 5 where there was a wrong screw and i got the blue screen of dead. i removed the screw in the ipad and it started to charge again.

i checked the screw again against a other ipad i have in for repair and the length is oke. removed the screw from the other ipad and put it in the ipad with the cahrging problem and it stopped charing. so now we have a ipad that has one screw less but at least it works.

moral of the story please keep your screws on the set place when removing from the ipad. i am glad i could solve it do because replacing a motherboard of a ipad air cannot be cheap.

hope this will help someone.

With regards

Francois

I made an error when replacing my iPad mini 2 screen when I had reconected the LCD screen and battery I went to put the small protector plate back on and used the wrong screw (slightly longer) in the left side bracket (the one closest to the battery) which caused it to snap off I didn't think this would be a problem as it didn't look like it was attached to anything important so carried on putting the the iPad back together I tested the screen everything worked fine up until it needed charging the iPad no longer charges is it possible I did damage the charger port flex or could it be something else thanks
