check dock connector no.4 is on properly and screws next to sticker that says "do not remove" as it connects motherboard to battery.

if the connector no. 4 is on properly and the screws good, what next? The battery had 28% when installed and charged a little (up to 30%) then went down and won't charge.

put the old battery (if you still have it) back in and see if it charges. It may be you have a bad battery. Batteries lose 30% capacity to charge per year just sat on a shelf so if you've got a "new" battery that's been on waiting a while to be shipped this may be the problem. Send it back and try a different vendor.

Could it possibly have been only the charging port that was bad and not the battery?
