Not charging after screen replacement

So i replaced the screen on an iphone 6s, the phone was brought to me almost dead just flashing battery, put it on charger and it charged to 35 percent. So i proceeded with the repair, so its safe to say the battery would charge before i replaced the screen. Installed new screen, turns on everything fine. But when plugged into charger it shows charging but its not charging the battery. I have ordered a new battery for it to see if that will fix the issue. I have tried a reset by holding down the home button and power button. I know i fully discharged the power aswell before removing the screen. I always hold down the power button before removing screens. Any idea how or what could cause this?

Holding power button is pointless, disconnecting battery and waiting about 5 - 10 seconds is enough to discharge everything.

As for your issue, there could be a few possibilities, you may have knocked something off during repair, or accidentally hit something and damaged it.

You could also have a poor quality screen that drains more power than an original screen.

The problem could of also been there beforehand, it could be a tristar chip issue from cheap cable damage, as tristar can cause the phone to only charge up to a certain percentage and it can also cause the fake charging issue that you're experiencing. :-)

after the replacement of the screen, the battery was really low, put on charger and it went to 8 percent. I guess it never went past that. I am guess you have experienced this yourself before. Got the screen from Injured gadgets was 75 for it. I know nothing about micro soldering nor the setup for it. Something that i would like to get into very soon.


Yes these are some of the symptoms of tristar chip damage, this would require micro soldering.

No need to hold power button after unplugging battery.

You only need to wait 5 seconds after unplugging battery.

Have you tried a another charging port flex cable?
