Over-night charged iPhone 5 not turning on, no matter what


I over-night charged my iPhone 5 five days ago, noticed in the morning the whole phone was scorching hot!

I immediately unplugged the charger connected and let it cool down naturally.

The screen was black and I tested out to see if it turns on, doesn't at all.

So I opened the cover and unplugged battery out of it to reset and inserted back in.

Still doesn't turn on. I swapped the battery to different one and nope ):

I could see the clear sign of mild burn inside and on the inner wall of cover (Brown color change spotted around inside).

Anyone know how to fix this? or which parts I most likely damaged???

I searched around Google and people hinted that usually motherboard get damaged by heat. Is replacing the motherboard easy? If it's not likely to get fixed then is there anyway to take out saved photo and datas from iPhone that's not turning on???

I watched one of the Youtube video showing how to transfer your components (which holds your data) to different motherboard. It seemed like motherboard is very heat resistant.

Anyone have an idea which component is most likely damaged by heat?


I left it connected to my charger for like 10 hours. Battery heats up so power seems to be going through to battery without problem.

Take it to someone that was micro soldering. Usually you will find them in an mobile phone repair shop. They are the ones that can do data recovery for you (basically get the phone working enough to get the data out).

You won't be able to do anything as the board is that badly damaged from short circuit during charging.

Ok, thanks for the advice. I will consider it as one of the option. And yes, Ive just noticed that my motherboard is heating up more than battery.
