Display screen black (no Apple logo/chime) after installing new batter

I just replaced a new battery on my MacBook Retina (12 in early 2015) after following the steps exactly as how they are listed on this article (even bought their kit).

Retina MacBook 2015 Battery Replacement

I triple checked all the connections and they are well connected and I don’t see any damage (not that I think I did because I was very careful).

I also bought the recommended low voltage USB-A to USB-C cable. When I plug the cable in, the display screen is still off (black) no chime sound or the battery charging symbol. It’s like the computer is completely dead. Doesn’t power on when I press the power button. Nothing. Could it be a faulty battery (bought it from ifixit).

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I am not completely sure but the battery might be defective, so it might give too much or too little power when booting. You might want to test the battery with a multimeter. If you don’t have one, someone at an electronic repair shop might test it for you. Happy Fixing! AppleManiac
