Some 1601 errors point to the battery being dead, but I can actually remove the battery ENTIRELY from my iphone and power it through USB with no problem whatsoever. That being said, a battery error will not stop you from having a functioning phone.
When you get a 1601 error along with flex cable symptoms (click the flex cable link in my sig), it is usually hardware issues with the motherboard itself. It CAN be the flex cable, but it usually is the motherboard.
If you have a wty, obviously take it back. Most people do not and they end up knocking on my door (now click the hardware link in my sig).
If you cannot power the phone at all, your only choice will be service the unit.
