Cant load iPhone 4S , always 1% , wont charge


I just cant charge my iPhone 4S, it always shows a load-screen but it keeps showing 1% of Battery.

iPhone starts up, but wont charge more than 1%.

Sometimes it turns off, maybe because it dont charge, even when its loading.

I already changed the battery, but no effect, same problem.

Actual iOS: 8.02

Any suggestions?

Look closely for damage near the battery connector. It sounds like you have a break in your battery gas gauge line.

the FPC Connector was just repaired few days ago, they told me , its not their part of work, to fix this problem, because they just soldered the FPC Connector.


If you aren't a microsolderer, then I would recommend that you send your board out for rework of the area. I would expect that any shop competent enough to have placed the battery connector for you would also be able to repair this defect. I can't imagine why anyone would send your board back to you without having offered to upgrade your repair to include replacing any pry damage at the local components near the battery. If you need a professional, feel free to click my iFixit Pro business link to my store iPad Rehab for mail in repairs.


Well , I live in Germany... so that will be not possible to send it to your shop


We repair International phones every week, got ones going home to Belgium, Australia, France and the Dominican Republic this week.


I mean the porto will be very expensive from Germany to USA and back again.

That will make no sense.
