no1 charge from known good charger/USB at wall ac...leave a few hours. then hold home and power to reboot. Is it recognised in itunes or does the vibrate work? (just to check it's not a display problem)

i'd check that mom and pop reinstalled the motherboard properly so that the screw under the "do not remove" sticker is in tight enough to make contact with the battery. while you are there I'd also check on the battery.. this may be your culprit. Also recheck connector 4 is on properly.

The battery in my phone has gone from working perfectly to 3ominutes of use in just over a few days! when the battery dies it dies! I recently upgraded from 3.1 to 4.2.1 (just because I thought after all this time maybe I should..) and I know there were issues with 4.x ios and battery life...if this is similar to you, maybe consider a downgrade of ios?
