5C Not Charging using genuine charging cable and mains
I repair Phones on my time off from my day job. My question is , My friend gave me his Daughters Iphone 5C to fix. It was completely dead when I got it and would not accept a charge from genuine apple cable etc. I opened it up and replaced the charging port with no success, then the Battery. It now switched on with new battery and charged up however I kept getting the ' This Cable or Accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this Iphone ' sometimes it will charge and sometimes not, I took a look at the inside again and saw that a tiny component was sitting oddly near the lightning port flex connector, See picture above ( apologies for poor image, taken on old Xperia :) . It has now completely come off the board and I guess this is what's causing my problems. Also the phone is not recognised when plugged into PC using a genuine cable. Are these 2 defects connected and can someone have a stab at guessing what the component is used for that's missing. Many thanks in advance for any help.
Is this a good question?
