5S Won't charge after power bar failure
Hi everyone. So I've fixed hundreds of customer phones but I'm actually struggling with my personal phone now.
My 5S was charging fine through a power bar with a USB port built into it. I checked my phone later and noticed it was no longer charging.
I look at the power bar and there's smoke starting to come out of the power bar.... I immediately unplugged the phone but the damage was done.
What happens now is i get the "this device may not be supported" error and it refuses to charge. It will take a charge if I turn the phone off and leave it plugged in, however my battery life is about 40% what it would previously do, and seems to run hotter than usual.
I've tried different plugs, cords & outlets. no charge
I've tried a new battery, no charge
my last effort was a new charge port flex, no charge.
Does this mean something on the motherboard has been fried? where do I go from here?
Thanks for any suggestions.
