iPhone 6 plus Logic board overheats and no display.

I have an iPhone 6 plus logic board and as soon as I plug it in it gets hot real quick(within a minute). Also there is no display when I turn it on. I bought it as a no power phone and found out that the battery that came with it was bad, so I replaced that. So now the phone turns on but overheats and does not display anything. I have looked all over for answers but can't find anything.

Is this a good question?

Is it heating up hot right under the rear camera? If yes then it sounds like a power management chip issue.

No it's more getting hot at the bottom of the board towards the battery and dock connectors. But I have not taken the shields off yet to take a look.

You bought this phone advertised as having "no power"?

Is it water damaged? Check for White/Red oval stickers. If they are red or missing, then it is water damaged and it could have all sorts pf problems that would cause overheating (shorts).

It could be in the backlight circuit or PMIC. Ideally, you need to start probing the logic board to understand what is going on. The schematics can be found on the web. Otherwise, this may be more suited to a repair shop that does micro-soldering repairs.

Yeah it's not water damaged(I won't buy any kind of water damaged board). Also I know it needs microsoldering repair and that's what I do as a little side job.

Found out that there was a chip that was causing a short on PP_VCC_MAIN. In ZXW tools the chip is U1401(Don't know the name of the chip though) and thats the area where it was getting really hot(used freeze spray to figure this out). So I removed it and now the short is gone. Thanks everyone for the help!
