Have you tried a reset by holding the power & home button for 10 seconds until you see the apple logo. If that doesn't help it may be the logic board charging circuit. Any other questions let me know.

i did try that i have heard the logic board could be it but not entirely sure its the u2ic the person i bought it from said it was a working phone and the only issue was fast battery drain but who knows if they were being honest bc it was dead by the time i got it


It could be that to, but also your on/off switch. I use a sync/charging cable that lights up which helps me troubleshoot issue like that. Here is a link that shows you more of what I'm talking about.


do you know a spot i can pick one of those cords up i dont have a best buy near me and i havent seen anything like this in a walmart


go online to best right now they are sale which I just picked up some more. Click on the link below.


It could be your U2 IC that went bad, I'm working on an iPhone 5C that has the same issue which I'm troubleshooting to the power management chip.
