Battery wont charge after new battery installed.

Battery wont charge after new battery installed.

OK, my phone kept shutting off even with battery still left, sometimes 40% sometimes 20% sometimes as much as 70%, as soon as I plugged it in and it would start right back to where it was (as far as the battery %). After about a month of this I figured the battery was dying and I needed a new one so I came on here and used the guide and replaced the battery. Then when I started my phone and used the front facing camera the phone would freeze up so I ordered a new one of those. But I realized my battery never charged and it died on me, so I thought maybe I received a bad battery and ordered another, when I got it it had about 20% so I plugged it in and came back about half an hour later, and I lost about 2%, so I tried 3 different cables 2 different wall chargers I tried the laptop the pc even the car charger... nothing. I restored it, no change. So I ordered a new charging port put it in and still nothing. What could the problem be? I'm at about 7% battery and counting.

"Hi, I have the same issue as max. My iphone 5 won't charge, even thought iTunes detects it and says it's charging. I've used various lightening cables, various power bricks and various USB ports. I've changed the battery with batteries purchased on ebay and an oem apple battery, I have 4 batteries total. I also changed the docking port. I recently jailbroken to run a variety of battery apps. One app in particular has the charging status as ""inactive"" when not plugged in, which didn't surprise me. But when I pluged it in the charging status switched to ""badtemp"". jessabethany, you mentioned there is documentation out there to troubleshoot the logic board. I've tried googling it, and haven't found anything concrete, also you mention the middle pins of the battery monitor the gas gauge. I am unfamiliar with that. Any more info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much"

"If your iphone is still under any warranty, best go back to apple tech support. It might initially be a bad battery pack.

Does this happen when it is plugged into iTune on PC or Mac computer?

Update

Have you tried backup everything and do a factory reset on iphone? a clean reboot with empty data and maybe even before activation then try to charge with original apple charger and computer to see if works. If can show charging try to see if charged 100% before further use of iphone.

It seem to me some kind of software problem since u have changed to new one n still cannot charge. Assuming the batt pack is apple original..."

i replace the iphone 5 battery. what seems weird is that after I charged it to 100%, it doesn't seem to deplete at all. I mean it's depleting like super slow. as if the battery level is not moving or maybe not accurate. how do I know if i can calibrate the battery energy level?

I replace my battery in my iPhone 5 it was charging before I opened up the phone to replace my battery,I can not get it to show its taking a charge. I thought it might be the battery so I stuck the old one back in and it's still not taking a charge. I was careful when removing the battery, is there something I might have done to damage it so it won't charge with any device? Everything looks normal.

yo tambien reemplace mi bateria en mi iphone 5, ademas reemplace el puerto de carga pero la bateria se muere luego de funcionar normal, es decir, se carga normal al 100% pero cuando por motivos de uso, cae al 5 % de carga se apaga y no puede volver a cargar. Vi un video en el q se carga la bateria por medio de un cargador externo, lo e hecho y si funciona, hay q abrir el telefono y conectar el cargador externo a la bateria por unos 15 min, luego conecte la bateria al telefono y ya me daba el icono en pantalla q necesita carga (la bateria roja). lo malo es q luego de ocupar el telefono cuando llega a sin carga, se apaga y no prende mas. me gustaria encontrar una solucion para no tener q abrir el telefono cada vez q se descarga...
