No success after replacing battery, what next?
Hi I dropped my iPhone and there is a small crack in the screen and on the back case.
The screen didn't break and the phone was still working but it stopped charging and wasn't recognised by the computer.
Eventually the battery died and the phone hasn't turned on since.
I have replaced the battery with a brand new one, what I wanted to ask is:
Neither batteries will charge, I assume that there both carry a charge, albeit a small amount to power the device so is this a logic board issue? or the dock connector?
