iPhone 5 won't power on, makes repeated charge noise when plugged in
The screen before was completely smashed but the phone still functioned - I could receive calls etc. It turned the torch on itself, which I couldn't turn off as the screen too damaged to function properly, and so the battery drained.
I just replaced the back casing (original was bent so cracked a new screen already)
and the LCD screen etc using youtube tutorials.
Now when I plug the phone in to charge it makes a repeated charge noise (or vibrate if in silent mode) and gets hot. I unplugged it last night as I just needed to get to bed after hours of fixing the thing and this morning the battery was completely flat again.
Connected to iTunes it shows the phone is 'there' with all its 'stuff' and is charging.
Ive already tried checking the LCD connectors, rechecking the battery connectors etc and I can't see if they are damaged.
My question is is this likely to just be a new battery needed? One of the internal logic board connectors (the long 2 cables) looks like it might be loose, would this contribute to it not turning on? Or could the replacement screen be faulty? Or do I need to take the whole thing apart again and check the power button.... pretty sure this all went in fine but not sure where to go from here... and have spent too much time and money to give up now!
Is this a good question?
