Crack screen repaired, charged it, worked for 1 day, now not charging

Hi everyone. Hope someone can help. I had taken my iphone 4s in to have a cracked screen repaired. After the screen was replaced, I charged the iphone to 100%. At first the camera was fritzing out and seemed frozen. I did a reset by holding the home button and the on/off and that seemed to work. I updated the phone to ios 9. And it worked fine. Went to charge it again and phone was fritzing out. white screen and phone keep vibrating. Did the home button reset again and the phone went back to normal. Went to charge the phone for a couple of hours and went to turn it on and nothing. Dead screen. Any idea what is going on? Tried to connect phone to iTunes, but iTunes says I have to key in my pass code first to recover.

Just a follow up. I did go back to the repair shop that replaced the screen originally and he replaced it with a new screen that worked free of charge. He says that his supplier has different quality screens and sometime you get a bad one. So far it is up and running. No glitches.


Thank you for the feedback. Glad that you got your phone fixed

How long after the repair did the problem start?

I suggest that you take it back to the repairer and show them the problem. Most reputable repairers give some sort of guarantee on their work, which excludes user abuse obviously, even if it is only for 30 days etc.

It has been only a day since the repair before it went black.
