Ipad 3 Processor Chip Overheating
I really do have an issue here. I have an ipad 3rd gen with 3g built in but I go to use the ipad and it will be very hot in the bottom left corner after a couple minutes which eventually left the ipad to not boot up and had to restore overtime. The restore fixes it but again the ipad gets hot so I ended up investigating more why it was becoming so hot.
I took the ipad apart and sourced out where the heat is coming from, and removed one of the shield plates giving access to the processor A5X chip.
After a couple minutes of gameplay, the chip is very hot and you cannot touch it. This seems to be the only place where its getting really hot. I did notice there was a thermal pad on it which had bubbles on it and so did the chip so I am not sure if its water damage or what but I really want to know what I can do to fix it because it obviously isn't normal to behave like that.
Any help would be appreciated.
- Also the ipad will start to freeze up when it gets super hot and apps sometimes will crash and won't open again even after restarting.
Is this a good question?
