The iTunes Error 9 is not as common as other errors & usually prompts when trying to update the firmware. iTunes Error 9 can be a software issue or a hardware issue but I've found it usually to be a case of hardware issues like faulty USB port and damaged cable. One of the easiest ways that can solve this problem is by changing the USB port. Simply disconnect your cable from your current USB port and plug it in to a different port. You might be surprised of how it can solve your problem during your update. If your cable is loose, your device loses its connection to iTunes which can lead to multiple errors. iTunes Error 9 can also be one of them. Check your cable if there are any damages or if it is not connected to the port properly. Worth trying another cable just incase. If you have a different laptop or PC with iTunes installed, you may as well try to use that for updating your phone. This is one of the easiest way to solve the error.
Hi Kevin Sounds like textbook symptoms of a failed Charge IC as mentioned above you could test if phone is drawing power, I recommend a 'Portapow' USB tester from Amazon. With the charge IC be careful, a new battery may power on phone and look like issues are solved, it may even charge again but once battery gets to 0% you will face same issue again. Common symptoms apart from what you have are jumps of large percentages whilst charging, slow to charge or charging symbol active but percentage not changing.
