Why will my iPhone not show any signs of life

So I got this iPhone 6 that is showing no signs of life at all, not charging or connecting to iTunes. I ordered a battery and charging port assembly and the battery arrived today so I installed it and it made no difference. I will replace the charging port once it arrives but I have a feeling that isn't it. Any ideas about what it could be? I have been told it has not been ever been water damaged

Have you measured the voltage output from the battery? Some batteries ship in a pretty depleted state and if its been on the shelf beforehand, may be fully depleted.

Assuming the battery has some charge, then using a USB ammeter can help you determine if the charge circuit is working or not.

If it is not charging (drawing current) or booting, then you need to start disconnecting modules (cameras, buttons etc.) until only the logic board and dock remain. If iTunes still can't recognize the phone, then you have a logic board issue.

If that's the case, then you will need to find a micro-soldering repair shop.

@refectio an iphone 6 i bought had no power or charge, i replaced the battery and charge port. the phone charges to 100% but on the amp meter it doesnt even hit 1 amp when charging it hits around 0.94 but drops and goes back up. when the charge is around 90 % the amps go up and down from 0 - 0.11 - 0.23 etc. could this be a problem with the phone or battery as it seems to drop the percentage to quickly like 5% in half an hour


Hey @djdannyrock, you should set this up as an independent question. Just tag me so I see it.
