    hi i have an iphone 4s that will not turn on

    i am repring the screen for a mate but come across this other problem when i tried to turn it on it just stayed on the charging battery screen and then after about 5 mins on that it just shows no sign of life

    then what i did was plug it into dfu and do a restore but it fails at 1601 error. cant get past this error no matter what i do

    then i pluged the iphone 4s into the usb and disconected the battery and it turned on for like 6 secs and then dies but i guess this is due to not enough power to boot .

    so i then tried the same thing but when the screen lit up with the apple logo i reconected the battery and now the the phone wont go past the boot screen ( i left for a day and more ).
    and wont boot with the power button

    i am realy not sure whats happening so please help

    Did you damage the connector on the logic board when removing the battery the first time?

    Also small step but try a different battery. It may be damaged.

    When you put the new battery in did it power on at all or just stay stuck at the apple load screen?

    So just to get this straight, even when it is plugged into a charger it does nothing? Just a dead iPhone? Have you checked to make sure the flex cable for the charging port is secure. It really sounds like the phone isn't getting enough power and that is usually caused by a bad battery but I'm thinking if I understand you correctly then perhaps the issue lies with the charging port.

    Edit 3: also. If you can replicate the issue where the screen gets stuck at the boot logo can you try a hard reset while everything is still connected? Just a thought.

    Your iTunes is either outdated or messed up (that's what error 1601 means) completely remove all traces of iTunes and do a clean install of the latest version, after that then try restoring.
