Problem Solution
Phone is boot looping This behaviour can be caused by a bad battery or a bad PMIC - both which are common on this phone. In rare cases a messed up home button plug on the logic board can cause boot looping.
Not Charging

But still turns on

If it charges at 0.005A via USB but still doesn't charge, it is usually Tristar or Shorted WiFi


Connect the board to the DC Power Supply & check the following:

  • If you have about 0.500mA before you prompt to boot, then you most likely have a shorted WiFi
    • This requires you to replace WiFi, then unbind WiFI using the iRepair P10 (easiest method)
    • See this video on how to Unbind WiFi: https://youtu.be/exi0F4oMSCI
  • If you don't have any current draw before prompt to boot, but after you prompt to boot, the current draw starts around 0.200A, then it's most likely Tristar
No Image If the phone boots up, but shows no image, do the following


Diode mode the LCD connector

Check for any shorts on the image lines, like

  • PP5V7_LCM_AVDDH_CONN
  • PN5V7_LCM_MESON_AVDDN_CONN
  • PP1V8_LCM_CONN
  • PP5V7_MESON_AVDDH_CONN

Most likely, you'll find a short on the above lines.

If so, inject voltage (1V/1A should be enough) to find the heat source. Remove the cap that heats up & test again.


Here's a full video tutorial of that process: https://youtu.be/2FhGIw6WiUw

No Backlight If image shows up by shining a light diagonally across the screen but no backlight, check the backlight filters near the logic board connector, particularly FL4221, they can blow. Here's a full video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgKpzfgOzL0

FPC Connectors diode mode readings[edit | edit source]

Use these diode mode maps as a guide to troubleshoot a problem. You must use the RED PROBE on ground and the BLACK PROBE on the pin you are measuring.

For example: you are troubleshooting a no backlight situation, so you probe the pins on the display FPC that correspond to backlight. If a pin says you should read 0.65 and you are reading OL or a short to GND then that's where you need to go.

If instead of getting 0.65 you read 0.58, move on to the next one, remember every multimeter is different and even slight differences in temperature affect this readings. What you are looking for is extreme differences in values, if you are expecting some value and you get a short to ground that is where it is more likely to be your issue.
