iPhone 4 Won't Charge After Battery Replacement?
I replaced my iPhone 4 Battery.
During the replacement process I sort of ignited my OLD battery for a split second because I tried to pry it off with a mini screwdriver (anything plastic I used broke, the battery was REALLY glued on).
Installed the new battery, but now it's been on charge for 5 hours and it's still showing me the "battery low" icon (it's plugged in).
Note that it isn't showing me the "plug in to power / low battery" icon, just the "low battery" part, since it's already plugged in.
Not sure what to do. My old battery is no longer usable and my new one is taking forever to charge.. should it take this long?

YAY Fixed it!
The new battery seems to last a really long time. It's been on 100% for the past hour! Pretty thrilled (before, an hour would drain more than 10%).
If anyone else comes across this problem and finds this thread, getting the oils from your fingers off of all the connectors could help.
I used cotton swabs and ammonia containing glass cleaner (like Windex) to gently clean all the contact points, particularly those on the ribbon cable, it's outlet and the tips of the metal pressure sensor strip.
I made sure the pressure sensor strip was fully dried before reinserting it and avoided using generous amounts of fluid.
Upon careful reassembly with tweezers everything worked, my battery was already at 100%.
