After replacing battery doesn't even start.

Sorry for my language, i'm not native speaker.

Hello everyone, i have iPhone 3gs. After replacing battery to not original (Palmexx now i don't have any battery besides this), phone doesn't turn on, itunes see it in recovery mode, but screen even doesn't blink. I can restore it, but in the end i have error 29. I've checked motherboard and didn't noticed any damage or any problem with tails (i hope i chose right word). When connected to the PC it gets warm. Again sorry for my language, and i wanted to ask if this problem becouse of the bad battery or becouse some other part of the phone was damaged?

I believe that error 29 is problem associated with a non-original battery and also a not original USB cable. If the cable you are using has worked before, you can rule it out. Change your battery to a different one (best is to get it from ifixit) and your phone should work again. As an alternative, You could try iRecovery and see if that will help you. Good Luck.
