    sir please,the power button of my itel 1507 is no longer responding,there were a couple of times it did not respond,but after some hours it will start to respond,now it is no longer responding,initially when that problem starts other buttons like the volume were still working fine, now its unable to power,but if i plug it,it will be charging fine.
    when i took it to a phone repairer he tried to jumper it but it didnt power,he used multimeter but no readings,while other components,like the volumes etc were reading. please save my dying phone,am loosing hope. Thanks

    • Santosh Das says:

      It is usually Software issue. Maybe the Technician did not do it properly. Get it checked by Some Experienced and Trusted Technician. I don’t think there is any IC Problem.

      Clean the Board Properly with IPA or Alcohol and allow to dry properly. Switch ON. If it works then Fine, otherwise apply Liquid Flux all over the Board and give some Hot Air and again try to switch ON.

    Hi Das sir, your all solutions are so impressive.
    I have also a query I am using REDMI NOTE 3 (32 GB), I was doing charging of my phone via MI 10000 MH power bank and suddenly didn’t know what happened, charging stopped.
    I have tried to charge with all possible things but it couldn’t help me
    So I went to MI service centre they checked voltage via multi meter but its didn’t show anything in it
    They changed USB connector but still the same issue so they said there is motherboard problem
    Is there any repairing solution if you wold like to guide us for the same

    • Santosh Das says:

      Maybe there is shorting somewhere in the the PCB. Get it checked Outside by some experienced Technician. They will Clean the PCB with IPA and Flux and apply Hot Air. This might solve the problem.

    Hello, I have got a moto g2 xt1068. It is water damaged and isn’t getting start nor responds to charger. Got it a chemical wash/dip from a local shop. He returned the phone saying board has short. Now what should be done??

    • Santosh Das says:

      Apply IPA and Flux all over the Board and then Give Heat using Hot Air Blower. If the problem is not solved then the SHORTING has to be checked and the component has to be replaced. Any good experienced technician will be able to do it.

      If the Battery Removable. If Yes, the BOOST the Battery Using Battery Booster and then Charge it. Also try to switch ON the Tab with a DC Power Supply. For all this, you might have to carry the Tab to some good technician.

    Sorry for the trouble. Last question would be…
    Do you power the board with a DC Power Supply or you just plug in Charger?

  24. George says:

    Hi Mr Das
    Im very interested in your article above since my focus is on getting dead phone working again. I have a little repair shop and its always been a challenge to revive dead phones. So far i understand how to fix shorting but my struggle is when a phone has no short.
    Right now i followed up with a device which has no short and the 0n / Off switch is giving me readings more than 800 to 1100 on multimeter pls advice.
