Hi friend, our facotry is wholesale 6s/6s plus lcd good quality, 3D touch function very sensitive . Welcome to contact me for price list. Tina skype: tinagu1989 email:

I am working on an Ipad 4 - model A1458 that was dropped off a moving car and sustained a considerable amount of damage. I have replaced the back cover and rebuilt the unit with a new LCD and digitizer. Everything else is now working but the unit will not charge.

I have tried the following:

1) Cleaned the lightening port

2) re-seated the lightening port on the motherboard several times

3) Eliminated charger and cables- All known working

4) On an inline voltmeter I do not see any amperage draw but when I plug in my other Ipad mini I get a reading of 1 amp draw in idle mode. I can see the lightening bolt but the charge stays at 1%. I know the unit is not charging because there is no amperage draw.

5) I have done several home/power button resets with no luck.

I have a new charging dock on the way and new battery. I have heard that the software determines if the unit will charge so I am trying to eliminate the hardware aspects that might prevent it from charging. I feel like I am on the finish line with this project but just can't break the tape. Any help would be appreciated!


OK- The USB volt meter arrived which also gives me the amps it is charging at.

1) When the unit is off .013 amps - Not charging

2) When in idle mode and screen is off- .013 amps- Not charging

2) When powering up .90- 1.0 amp charging

3) When unit is completely up and running 1.1-1.21 amps charging

when I put the same charger on the Ipad mini that is working**
1) When the unit is off it charges at 1.61 amps

2) When in idle mode and screen is off it charges at 1.61 amps

3) When powering up it charges at 1.61 amps

4) When the unit is completely up and running it charges at 1.61 amps

All tests are conducted with the following known working parts. Charger and lightening cable. The replacement lightening port is on the way but I do not expect any change but better safe than sorry.

Please help as I am only left with the U2 charging chip which I do not have the tools to replace. As you all know a new Motherboard will cost me close to what the unit was purchased for so I am trying to avoid that.

How do I find e mails
