Thanks for the guide, a few differences, but relatively straight forward. I use painter’s masking tape to tape all the screws to the parts they held in, then put the logic board screws into a little metal tray. In my case the device had been previously worked on and there were 3 missing bottom case screws, only 2 logic board screws to remove along with the DC in board screws.
You should use an earbud/”q-tip” dampened with isopropyl alcohol (otherwise known as IPA) to clean all areas affected by the spill.
I would guess that if the power adapter and the charge port are both new and tested working on another device, you may have a dead SOC CPU…I believe you can test by checking for short to ground on the USB data pins as the connect directly to the PCH in the SOC CPU package.
If you need advice on this failure, maybe drop by our Discord server for assistance ++http://invite.ers.repair/++
This device has a soldered on e-MMC storage chip.
No, not on this model
It could be the Tristar chip. Search YouTube for iPadRehab channel and watch a few of the Tristar or not charging videos to see why it may be the case.
This part can die when using non-genuine mains charger and/or non-genuine cable due to not filtering spikes on the charging lines if I remember right.
I presume using a white lightning port replacement on a phone with an existing black lightning port is fine?
The parts don’t identify themselves to the mainboard and be detected as a mismatch will they?
I removed the vibration sensor to pull the tabs at a better angle and the first one still snapped.
I removed the second adhesive strip without issue then I heated the phone from the bottom at 170C, without a nozzle, with my hot air station for a few minutes from a distance then I got a bit closer until I was satisfied it was warm but not scorching.
Then I used a pick on the outside (case edge, left side) of the battery and used the iFixit tweezerpressed together to slide behind the pick on the side I had already removed the strip from.
I was able then to grab the adhesive strip with the tweezers and subsequently pull again using my finger and thumb.
The battery will be free floating when the second strip comes out.
Thanks for the guide!
