you need to recheck your battery connections and the dock connector. you may have damaged the battery solder points when you swapped the screens. you need to open the phone again and check the wires/solder points.

I might of damaged the battery while removing it. It was very difficult to separate it


Did it myself... It's a simple repair. You just need patience and a steady hand with a soldering iron.


+ and if you are like me I use a magnifying lamp so I can see if any of the solder or traces are short circuited by overflowing solder pads.


Ill try that.. I didnt want it to come to that.. but thanks guys
