Answer to: iPhone 4 error 21 and will not startI know this is a long time later, but people still read these things. I fixed a phone with an error 21 behaving the same as the original post. Upon closer inspection I found one of the tiny wires/pins on the battery connector was bent. A gentle tap and it was all lined up for the battery to plug into. Problem solved. Worth a try for a cheap fix.
