Changed mic/dock, now the phone wont charge

Hello! I was having problems with my microphone (not the speaker mic), I followed a tutorial on this site and changed the mic/dockconnector.

After I put everything back again the mic worked, but now the phone wont charge. I can't see what I did wrong when I put everything together as written in the tutorial.

I used a spare dock/mic connector that came with a white Iphone case if that matters, (I have a black front & back).

The mic/dock for the white Iphone, sort of had a different size(?), so I couldn't put the left screw at the dock back in, if that matters?

Thankful for any help

Have you checked battery connection? Does phone connect to iTunes or work on ac power, but not once you remove? Then it would more likely be battery connection..


No, i had about 20% battery left when i started up the iphone again, it wouldn't synchronize or charge with neither the computers or the ac adapter at all.

Could the battery connection have been the problem?

I put everything back toghether thogh, with the old mic/dock and suddenly everything worked as it should, even the mic.. strange. The mic worked from time to time before aswell, so I think it's only a matter of time before it stops to work!

A new problem is now that my Iphone turns off somethimes, and I need to start it up again

Seems like my poor Iphone has been torn down and put toghether again too many times :P

I've had many docks for iphone 3G that wouldn't charge. It's always possible that you just were unlucky and bought a non working part..send it back. Random crashes may be software or hardware..if it's jailbroken remove apps until it stops. If the phone is more than 1 year and is not holding charge or needing charging more often, might be battery needs to be changed?
