iPhone 5s not coming on

Iphone 5s, after i lent my charger to my aunt my phone refused to would charge to 3% / 4% would not charge any further . then when i try to use it the screen flickered on and off then died. thinking that it was a battery failure i replaced the battery and i have not gotten it to turn on since. im a cellular tech and tried everything in my power now im asking for advise.

The only thing i haven't tried is ordering a brand new batter/charging port or a new charger.

can anyone advise me on whats going on or what caused this i would appreciate it

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

For a no power problem you're right to think battery, and then new dock connector.

A new battery should turn the phone on. If not, then you may have a different problem.

First rule out bad (new) battery, then dock connector. After that we will start thinking about the board. Make sure to test if the phone is on by connecting it to iTunes---that way a no display issue won't get in the way of your troubleshooting

im going to buy a oem charger and connect it with out a battery if the phone does not go into a boot lop then im looking at a board issue. if so i would like to figure out why


the phone probably will boot loop with no battery installed. stick a new battery in there. it should boot from a new battery, they come with residual charge

You did say the screen flickered and wouldn't turn on it could be the display but thats a long shot
