iPhone 5s completely dead both battery and charger port replaced

Hi, my iPhone 5s is now completely dead and I have no ideas left of what to do.

When the phone was alive the battery was little bit to bad so I replaced it and the battery capacity made some improvements, but after a few days the phone was difficult to charge. I tried different chargers, USB cables and sometime the phone started to charge if I left the charger plugged in for a while but then after another days it totally dead.

It doesn't respond at all if I put the charger in, no symbols or nothing in the display and no vibration either when the power is plugged in.

So, then I replaced the charging port with the flex cable and so but the exact same issue remains. To make sure the new battery isn't bad I put back the old again but it's still dead.

What do you think? What more can i test? I have also tried the trick by pressing the on/off and home button for 30 seconds.


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Do you use car chargers?

Anyway it sounds like the U2 tristar charging IC chip on the logic board has gone bad. I'd take it to a repair shop that replaces those.

It's prone to go bad on the iPhone 5s if chargers that don't have overvoltage protection are used (like cheap chargers and/or charging cables).


Oh, that sounds bad. As there are no warranty left and the phone has been "home repaired" several times before I think an Apple repair shop not is the way to go but replacing it self isn't an option. I guess I will sell it as repair object and buy a new one for my daughter who is the user.

Regarding cheap chargers you're correct. This phone has been using lot's of cheap ebay chargers and cables that looks cool for a 8 year old girl so I guess that's why it has been damaged.

Thanks for your reply!

Be sure the new connector is connected in the same place as before and is not tight
