motherboard connector that controls charging

hello I replace my broken digitizer but now the battery won’t charge and the home button won’t work either. I tried another digitizer and its the same. Which connector on the motherboard controls these together? I probably bent or broke pins?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The charging and home button worked before you replaced the screen? I’ll get the connector pics for you here shortly.

Yes they both worked fine. Thanks Tyler


Mine are the black circles I drew.

Note that your home button connects to the connector attached to the back of the screen then connects to the smaller connector on the logic board as shown in the photo.


Now I have to ask, did you unplug the battery before you started anything else during the screen repair? Having both of those guys go out at once sounds like something was shorted. Take a look at your home button flex and see if their is any sort of damge to it. Also take a look at the battery connector which sits right below the charge port connector on that image. Maybe take a few photos and put them in the chat, so I can take a look.


Thank you. I thought I did disconnect the battery but I think it was the wrong connector. I'll take a look at the battery connector and post pics if no problem is found. Thanks again Tyler
