Recently changed the battery on iphone 5, plugged it in to charge. No response from screen. the phone only beeps about every 2 seconds, or if I shift the sound switch on the side, it vibrates every 2 seconds. What can I do short of going to the Apple store?
Have you carefully checked to make sure the battery connector is properly seated and there's no damage to any internal components?
I'm afraid a trip to the Apple Store is out of the question because you've opened and serviced the iPhone yourself. Apple will no longer even look at the iPhone as soon as they detect it's been opened by anybody other than an authorized service centre.
