Why won't it turn on after battery replacement?

The 5C came to me with a shattered screen. I fixed the screen and it would not turn on. I tested the screen and it works on another 5C. I replaced the battery. The battery works on another 5C. I have tried holding the home button and the power button to reset it. That will not work. I have plugged into the computer. Will not charge. The working 5C worked on the computer. I tried plugging it into the wall. The wall charger worked on the working 5C. What else could possibly be wrong with this phone?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Have you tried DFU mode and then itunes?

Try to hold the power and homebutton for a really long time (like a minute or so)

If it was working before a screen replacement and now you have no power, I would be looking for a missing/damaged component on the board near the battery connector.

I had a similar issue, our IPhone 5C will not turn on. I tested the battery and the screen on a second IPhone 5C and both worked. All connector are secure. I'm searching for an answer to this problem.

I had the same issue, try DFU mode and restore with iTunes, after that the iPhone will turn on. But if you have the battery at 0% and turns off the issue can happen again.
