Not Charging In Iphone 6 Plus Repaired
I walked into a mini market near my house and the owner approached me with his Iphone 6 plus that was dead. He explained that he took it to a technician who informed him that something was wrong with the charging IC inside that phone.
When I got the phone, it was already opened and if you recall the article about the Iphone that I fixed before that was also open due to the fact that the battery swelled up pushing the screen up? I believe it was the same issue here or may be worse case. I was willing to check it out and see what I can do to help out.
As I lifted the screen up and checked the battery; it was like I expected.
A swelled battery that pushed the screen up so I decided to replace that battery and see if the phone comes on or not.
All the batteries come already 70% charged and the moment I installed the battery in, the phone was alive but there was another issue. It was not charging. When I tried to charge the phone, the percentage of the battery was dropping not increasing which means it was not getting any power.
There is a way to check the voltage reaching the battery by checking it with a meter but since I have another charging port in my shop I added a charging port externally to the phone and checked the battery percentage.
That is a new charging port that I connected to the phone and waited. In about ten minutes, the battery percentage started going up and I could feel some heat being generated inside the phone which is a good sign.
In about half an hour, the battery percentage went up to 100 percent which proves that there was something wrong with the battery and the charging port inside the phone as well. It was time to install a new charging port inside and finish the repair.
This is a new charging port that I used to charge the phone. If you look you will see all these holes which mean on the actual phone, there are screws to come off so I can install this in.
Once all these screws were off, I was able to install the new charging port inside and phone test it and make sure all was well.
Since there are a lot of screws to remember where to put back and not all the screws are the same, I use this magnetic pad to remind myself where all the screws go.
As expected, the phone was working according to specifications. I took the phone myself to the customer because I go there every day anyway to buy stuff and I gave him the phone. You should see the look on his face when he got it and to that kind of look I could say:
