Battery scraped during backplate replacement - overheating
Today I did a backplate replacement for a friend, during reassembly I tried to turn it on before I put the 2 screws back in. It didn't turn on, but it started getting warm and smelled wierd, I opened it up and there was a yellow patch where the black bit of the battery had scraped off. We put the original backplate back on and did the screws up tight. I told him to keep it in his hand. If it starts smoking, gets too hot or catches fire, ditch it. When he got home he removed and disposed of the battery. Will this render the device is less or will a simple battey replacement fix his phone?
Is this a good question?
