    Don't Panic.


    I haven't done the com swap (yet, thinking about it), but I would carefully work my way backwards if I were you. It sounds like the pre isn't seeing the battery. Perhaps you missed a step while reassembling. I would take the unit apart again and compare what I'm seeing to pictures/video of the process, focusing on the area near the battery connection.

    If you still can't get it running, pictures may help someone who knows what they're doing help you out.

    There's a small metal housing that's covered by the com board sticker, if you're looking at the picture below from webOS internals, it's the piece just under the red arrow where it crosses the corner of the com board.



    That piece comes up independently if you just pull on it, it's held in place by adhesive. You might want to check if you may have knocked those connections underneath loose in the swap process. They can be fiddly...

    Have you tried using another battery?
