Capacitor is missing from logic board. Which one is that?


I replaced my battery, everything worked fine for the first few hours than my phone started restarting itself and now it wont even turn on.

I realized that i broke a capacitor near the battery connector.

Could please somebody tell me which one is that and if its necessary to have on the board or a jumper would do the job?

It's a bad idea to replace the capacitor with a jumper, since a capacitor serves as a DC insulator, you'll short the device out immediately.

This cap is C25, 56PF, 5%, 16V, 01005 package. It should not be critical, check for other damages.
