S4 mini won't turn on. Checked the simple stuff

I dropped my s4 for the 2nd time in 5 years. Back cover pops off battery went flying. Dropped from 3'.phone will not power up/charge at all. Replaced LCD screen, charge port even bought used working s4 and swapped my mother board (all simple plug and play) still nothing. It's a much harder fix. I looked at board under microscope it looks very clean. I need the data on the chip recovered it is almost a life or death situation. Seriously! I need to recover voice messages , recordings of conversations and texts. I had no back up so no simple chance of recovery. My bad. I need the best of the best to either fix my phone or recover all data including in order of importance text messages, phone conversation recordings , voice mails and pictures. I need someone highly skilled in circuit board troubleshooting and repair or recovery of data from memory on board. I cannot express the urgency and importance of this job. Anyone with the skill set in the USA that can help please contact me asap @ lytemup65@msn.com to discuss costs if this is possible.I have a deadline of July 1st but if can be done sooner the better. Located on West Coast any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

It's a one in a thousand chance, but it happens. It's not the drop that did it, but the flying battery. When the battery disconnected without powering the phone down, it may have bricked the flash storage. Not alot you can do in this case, but if you're lucky you may be able to recover your data using your PC. Plug it in and find the file with your data. Remember to set up all of Google's apps next time, as they all back up everything to the cloud for free. Especially google Photos. Also, try putting your old motherboard in the new phone, along with a new battery. It may be something to do with the battery or screen.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your response. I did swap my board into working phone no result. I tried plugging in to pc before but not recognizing phone as I think? It has to be powered up for pc to recognize ? I however will try again tonight as it could have been a charge port and cable problem as that part was worn to where i needed to plug in just right to make connection. And yes a lesson learned to make time to back up no excuse thank you for your input.
