Powering on Galaxy S6 by shorting the pins on the board

Hey everyone....

I'm curious to know if anyone as tried powering on the Galaxy S6 by shorting the two pins on the logic board.

It works for computers and the like, but I've never tried it on a phone and wanted to get ummm.... "confidence" before trying it haha

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yeah. Pretty self explanatory when the power button is actually connected by two pins.


hah yea kinda a silly question i know, just wanted to confirm what i already know cause I was working on someone elses phone and didnt want to short it out and had a thought that maybe one of the other contacts affected the ability to turn on the phone without the housing or something

That should work. It is the exact same concept as shorting the power button header on a motherboard. Just be careful and wear ESD Safety Equipment.
