Water Damaged, IC Power Chip
Long story short, Got my father the S6 edge for his birthday, the next day he left it in the washing machine ^_^
so i was able to dial down the problem to the IC power chip on the motherboard, but buying a new motherboard is ridiciusoly expensive, I'd rather pay an extra $50 and get him a new phone :)
However, B4 i do that i need to make sure i have tried everything possible to fix that phone, even if i had to ship it to someone else to repair it, so any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
i didn't wanna bore everyone with the details, but since peeps asked :P
well, with my limited experience, i immediately submerged the phone in a large dry bowl of rice for four hours, took out the plastic cover, made sure there are no residues or corrosion done to the motherboard ( that includes the cleaning part)
took off the battery and tested it with a simple breadboard LED bulb, it lit up.
used the same technique around the motherboard (where applicable) and the only irregularity was around the power IC chip. hence my diagnosis.
Is this a good question?
