Why is my iPhone not charging?
Here's my problem:
I connected a 3.5mm (audio) cable to my iPhone 5s while it was playing music and it did not turn off the loudspeaker. Tried it with iPhone earbuds as well and the Headphone jack isn't working with that either (music keeps playing over loudspeaker).
Later that day the iPhone battery died (seemed to have emptied quite fast too) and when I tried charging it later nothing happened (I'm sure the charging cable works).
As Headphone jack and Lightning connector are the same part (dock connector), I tried replacing that part but it was to no avail; still not charging/turning on.
When I first plugged it in after replacing the part I did hear a ticking noise coming out of the loudspeaker but it does not do that anymore now.
Left it at the charger for over an hour, just to be sure.
Any idea what it could be? I'm fine with opening up the iPhone and replacing other parts.
Is this a good question?
