iPhone boots up once, then needs to reconnect the battery


I just finished replacing the battery and screen of an iPhone 5C which is actually quite basic procedure for me. At first everything seemed fine, it powered up normally using the power button and the home button works fine as well. BUT as soon as you´d power it down, be it manually or whatever else, it NEEDS to get the battery unplugged and plugged back in, otherwise it simply won´t turn on again. While it´s off, it gets detected by the computer, but shows no sign of live at all.

The thing is, after I reconnect the battery it powers back on normally and works normally, as well. So, as long as it´s on, it´s fine, but after you power it down, there is no getting around reconnecting the battery.


Where did you get the battery from?


This one I got from eBay.
