Two phones, two batteries. Won't hold charge?


So I had two identical phones I wanted to replace both charging ports and batteries. Now that both replacements are complete neither will accept a charge? Both batteries had about 20% charge when I plugged them in for calibration. Lightning bolt showed they should be charging however the phone screen said charged? I watched both phones on good chargers dwindle down until they shut off. Next day they won’t turn on and I cannot find anything online about this issue. Might anyone have some insight into what may be happening?

Thank you in advance!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Maybe it’s an issue with the replacement charging ports or batteries you installed. I would suggest trying the phones with their original parts to see if that’s the issue.

Thank you for the reply Levi! I believe I may had a user error? I swapped the screens and checked all the internal plugs. No issues. I decided since I assumed the batteries should be fully charged I held down the hard reset buttons. After about 10 seconds the Apple logo appeared and everything was fine! Batteries are holding a charge and phones/charging ports working fine.
