Battery replacement failed to light screen

I bought the battery replacement kit and followed the directions. I practiced on another, identical, broken device, so was pretty familiar with the procedure when I got to the “real” phone.

It seemed that all went well. When I fired it up (before applying the final adhesive) I got no screen response. I charged it overnight for about 14 hours (no screen indicator during this time).

When I press and hold the power button I feel a haptic vibration. The vibration is very brief. That would seem to indicate that the battery is live and connected.

I don’t know what to do now.

Any thoughts?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Sounds like the screen might not be connected fully. Try reseating all of the ribbon cables with the battery unplugged.

Have you checked that there no component missing near the display connection socket ?

unfortunately I have the same issue and i think is due to some capacitor broke during the flat removal :(

i bought a new display, and both old and new make no life signal
