Device will not power on ¶
The phone does not turn on or respond when power button is pressed
Faulty battery ¶
Plug the charging cable into the device, and then plug the charging cable into a working electrical outlet. If the indicator light at the top of the phone illuminates when plugged in, press the power button. If the phone powers on, the battery is likely the problem and must be replaced.
Faulty charging port ¶
If the battery and charging cable are both functional and the phone still does not power on when plugged in, the charging port of the phone may be faulty and can be replaced with a new charging port PCB board as shown.
Motherboard damage ¶
If it is determined that the software of the phone is at fault in the issue, the motherboard may be replaced by following this guide.
Overheating/Faulty Battery ¶
Note that the most common cause of overheating in smartphones is being kept in cramped conditions. Ensure that the phone is open to the air while charging or after active use. The battery will stop charging as a safety precaution if kept charging in cramped conditions, so be sure that this is not the case before replacing parts
Faulty battery ¶
If the phone is overheating, check to see if the heat source is coming from the battery. If the battery is a factory installed Li-Po 2100 mAh battery and is overheating, it is likely faulty and can be replaced.
Third-party batteries ¶
If the battery is still the source of overheating, ensure that the battery is a factory grade Li-Po 2100 mAh battery. If it is the proper battery type, but is distributed by a third-party source, it may very well likely be the problem. Third-party batteries can dangerously overheat, resulting in a complete loss of the phone and should be replaced immediately with a sufficient Li-Po 2100 mAh battery.
Speaker replacement ¶
If the bottom receiver speaker is no longer functional, it must be replaced.
Replacement of bottom, front facing speaker ¶
