Well, first let's stop putting electricity into these devices. Second let's find a good repair shop in your area that has an ultrasonic bath and does board level repair work. Or if you don't/can't find one in your area, iPad Rehab does the best work in the country and has an amazing mail in service. I do appreciate that you tried cleaning it with IP yourself first. But sounds like a tooth brush isn't gonna take this time

EDIT: Again the ultrasonic bath with bransonic, or an equal quality electronics cleaner with distilled water is the best solution. Before going microsoldering. Test a known good battery, lightning dock, and display. Yes, read what you wrote, you charged a battery

I am the service and I am from Italy. Cleaning does not help as I've said before, need some more concrete answers about components on motherboard to check


Ok. Cleaning with alcohol is not the same as cleaning with an ultrasonic bath. If you are a board level repair shop you'll want to use your multimeter to test continuity on the u2ic and maybe the pmic


Thanks! u2 is ok, will look pmic
