iPad 7 (2019) Common FaultsEdit

Problem Solution

No Power. Passes Tristar Tester, no VCC main or secondary voltage shorts, does not boot directly into DFU, will not restore (usually gives Error 4013).

This device is very notorious for having CPU related issues. The board flexes and tends to disconnect traces under the CPU causing this issue. Reballing the CPU can sometimes fix the issue, but the CPU also can just fail altogether. Seems to be a very common defect for this model.
