Reviving My Dead iPhone SE

  • Published on Oct 20, 2018
  • After a few months of siting on my display shelf, my iPhone SE was not longer powering on or charging. At first I though the issue was board level. But after some troubleshooting I was able to revive the iPhone back to functional condition.
    Unfortunately I am still getting battery drain, (around 30% overnight) I am lead to believe it could be the dock connector as I have had similar issue before on an iPhone 4s and the SE is also not connecting to my Mac. (Will post an update here in the future when I order and test a new dock connector)
    But at least iPhone is turning on again!

    Are you sure it wasn’t just bricked? You probably should have tried pressing the home and power button at the same time

    I mean, you didn't do actually a proper repair there, you just "swapped a battery" while removing the charging port randomly (I mean, all that work just for making it easier for the pull tabs... risks ain't worth it in my opinion). Though, glad it worked for you, but still, having a TL;DR in the video description may be saving you from being another one of those "clickbaiters".
    Keep up the good work!

    You could have used a low amp output ( probably from a laptop USB port) to allow the dead battery to charge,

    My Asus phone just vibrates infinitely when I put it for charge. It doesn't power up either. Does the reason at 02:23 hold good for all phones? Is the LCD faulty ?

    I had an Iphone 4 that would turn off alone after five minutes of being unplugged, no matter the battery porcentage. So I used it charging all the time. Eventually turned off charging and never turned on again.

    Apple started mitigating the battery life of some iPhones like the 6-SE, something to do with old batteries or something. They dropped the price of battery replacements down to £25 a while ago. Not sure if this is the case with yours as you replaced the battery yourself 🤷‍♀️

    I've seen other videos doing modifications to their phones.. Maybe you can try those out?
    Thing is i forgot which youtube channel i first saw them on....
    There's one that puts leds in the apple logo...lights in the speaker area, wireless charging(they put in a different outer case...
    I think it was around 1995-97 , that i think it started in japan...that they took their laptops and customized it by giving it transparent cases, mood lighting etc...
