Strange battery issue after replacing the battery

Hello there, after I replaced the battery of my iPhone with a new one, it won't charge anymore. It still detects when the power adapter is plugged in : when I plug the iPhone, I can see the low battery red icon.

Let's recap what I did :

1/I did enter recovery mode to try to make a fresh install of iOS. To do so, I unplugged the battery so I could get out of this low battery menu. Unluckily, I got the errors 2001 and 2002 (I tried several times).

2/I got an idea : enter DFU mode, start the recovering process with iTunes, all of this with the battery UNPLUGGED. When the recovery started, I instantly connected back the battery to the iPhone. Thus, the iPhone did reinstall iOS : recovery complete !

3/However, I still can't turn this device on. I still get this magnificent low battery icon. Any ideas of what could be the problem ? I thought about the lightning port which may be dead. But I'm surely wrong I guess.

Thanks for your help !

It sounds like you either have a faulty Charging port or the U2 Charging IC is bad.

Could be a faulty battery as well. But in terms of the Tristar chip there are lots of places out there that can repair or replace the chip just have to look around it’s a pretty common thing.

Back for news, seems the problem isn't from the battery. Actually living in France, and the reparation for this chip costs a lot. I already have all the material needed (soldering iron etc). Do you know where could I find a real iPhone 5 U2 1608 IC ? Thanks a lot

Do you have experience in microsoldering? If not it’s personally something that I would not recommend doing yourself.

Hello there ! I finally decided to sell the phone, and guess what... The guy just turned the phone on. Idk how he did. I have disassembled and reassembled the iPhone entirely, tried different chargers... Can't turn it on. And this guy did. Any clue on what he did ?
