Can you take a picture of this lock? I've never heard or seen it before.

I'm wondering if it's the rotation lock...

If it is the rotation lock, then he still has the problem with it not charging. Maybe the gas gauge lines are disconnected showing no increase in battery percentage, but it is actually charging. The iPhone 4's are known for battery connector problems. Just replacing the battery could have loosened the connector enough to prevent the phone from receiving the battery level signal.


Hmm. Would need to replace the solder, on the battery connector, on the logic board. It's an old phone, I could see those solder connections going bad
