Rispondi a "iPhone 7 no Power, no short!"What do you mean by “all the PP lines”? There are nearly 50 power lines in an iPhone 7…have you tested them all or just a few. As for the “VCC” lines, there are only two. Please be more specific about which lines you have checked and whether or not they were looked at in diode mode, voltage mode etc. The better the info you provide, the better the answers you will receive. Working on dead iPhones requires a systematic approach when there are no obvious failures. You start with the three main lines, then Boost, then the main BL/LCM/Touch lines, then the PMIC outputs (switchers and LDO’s), then the BBPMU outputs and then whatever LDO’s you haven’t already looked at (Mesa, Mamba, Camera etc.). If you have any visible clues, like corrosion, burn marks or heat signatures, then you can focus on those first.

Rispondi a "Sreen lights up but shows nothing"It’s very important to always disconnect the battery before disconnecting/reconnecting the screen assembly. The issue is that the LCD connector has pins that have high voltages (i.e. the backlight is ~20V) and ground in very close proximity. When you fumble around trying to line up the connector plug to the receptacle, you can short out the voltage rail and cause damage to the components in the backlight circuit. If you’re lucky, then only a backlight filter is damaged but other times, the entire circuit could be affected. Either way, this type of repair requires micro-soldering and isn’t really a DIY repair. To test for this, plug your device into a charger or an iTunes enabled computer. Then shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you can see a dim image, then the backlight circuit has been damaged. If you can’t see an image at all, then it may be the LCD circuit that is damaged. You can connect the original, cracked screen to confirm this. If the original screen has the backlight on, then the...
Rispondi a "Home button stops working after lightning connector replacement"I would check the following: • Is the home button bracket properly installed? • Is the flex or button damaged in any way? • Check the FPC connectors between the Home Button flex and the Extension flex that goes behind the back-plate. The connectors may be improperly seated or damaged, as they are quite delicate. There are three areas you need to inspect with either a magnifying glass or jeweler's loupe. 1. Where the home button connects to the logic board along with the LCD, Digitizer and Camera. 2. The Home button connects with the Home button extension flex that runs under the backlight. 3. The tiny circuitry on the Home button flex itself as well as the integrity of the flex between the button and the circuitry. The connectors at either end of a flex, as well as on the logic board, are very delicate and can be damaged very easily. Check for broken pins or debris that may impede...
Rispondi a "iPhone ne s’allume pas non détecté mais cpu chauffe court circuit"Malheureusement, je ne crois pas que ça vaut la peine d’essayer de sauver un iPhone 5S avec de la corrosion. SI vous voulez faire un essai, alors il faut enlever tous les boucliers pour voir s’il y a de la corrosion qui s’y cache. Une fois nettoyer, vous allez peut-être être chanceux, mais sinon, il faut essayer de trouver la composante qui cause le court circuit. La ligne VCC_MAIN est la plus difficile à dépister alors il faut s’armer de patience. Par contre, si le court-circuit se trouve sous le CPU, vous etes cuit.
Rispondi a "Is my Audio IC broken?"IMHO, I would open a dispute and have the seller accept responsibility for the false ad. Buying used phones on eBay is risky business. You’re better off trying to find something local if possible. It might be a bit more expensive, but you will have better recourse in case of unexpected issues.
Rispondi a "Replaced screen a week ago and screen suddenly went blank"It’s possible the screen is defective. Ideally, if you could re-install the original cracked screen to see if the problem follows the screen or stays “with the phone”. If the problem stays with the phone (that is both screens have the same issue), then read the following: It’s very important to always disconnect the battery before disconnecting/reconnecting the screen assembly. The issue is that the LCD connector has pins that have high voltages (i.e. the backlight is ~20V) and ground in very close proximity. When you fumble around trying to line up the connector plug to the receptacle, you can short out the voltage rail and cause damage to the components in the backlight circuit. If you’re lucky, then only a backlight filter is damaged but other times, the entire circuit could be affected. Either way, this type of repair requires micro-soldering and isn’t really a DIY repair.

Rispondi a "How to hard reset iPhone 6s and also how to fix mushy home button"Removing the passcode is easy…you don’t need to “know a guy” to do it. But doing this will delete any data you have on the phone. There is no way to get the data off the phone unless you can open it, unlock it and have it recognized by Windows/MacOs and then subsequently through iTunes or any other management software (such as 3uTools). If you are truly the owner of the phone, then use the passcode to unlock it. If you found this device, you should either do everything you can to find the owner or if it’s not possible, wipe it clean.
Rispondi a "iPhone 8 plus stuck in bootloop after failed update"If you have a copy of your data, you could do a DFU Restore of iOS.
Rispondi a "Lifted pad for charging IC"That depends on which pad is lifted. If you have a connection point nearby, you could run a jumper. If it goes within inner layers to the CPU, then yeah, you are probably in trouble. Use a tool like Phoneboard to understand what connects to what and post more and better details so we can help you.
