I just checked a mini 4 board I have on the bench. This is a 100K / 01005 resistor acting as a pull-down. This is similar to the circuitry on the iPad mini 2 (see R2241 on page 19 of the schematic).

Thats great , thank you , do you also have the correct orientation of the 1610A3 chip , it looks like this has also been replaced , i want to check it is on correctly .

As when i connected the charging cable i had the apple logo briefly then connect to itunes but back to black screen as soon as cable is removed .

it will not connect to itunes on pc either , so im thinking maybe the tristar chip not fitted properly judging by the pry damage .

If you look at the logic board length wise, with the WiFi Ic to the right, then the dot on Tristar is at the top-right hand corner.

Hi again , ive replaced the chip , still no joy , could you please check your board to see if there should be a component on the pads to the left of the cap just above the chip in the photo ,

From the limited zxw board view it seems there should be .

Very strange symptom when plugged in see video , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lG82F3j...

could this be because the screen is smashed ? . The battery is dead flat too.
