Ipad 1 water damage
I've got myself a broken ipad 1. The previous owner said the battery died so he removed it and tried to find a replacement but gave up. The truth is, that once i got the device and disassembled it, the battery was soldered backwards (wrong polarity) and the motherboad seems to have suffered some water damage also (signs of oxidation). I've cleaned the motherboard, it seems pretty ok, no visible damage, then I removed the battery cells, soldered the correctly, charged them to about 3.6 volts and tried to power the device. No luck, not recognised by the pc, nothing on the display also.
The board also doesn't charge the batteries when plugged to a wall charger.
My question is, where should i start? From your experience what's is more likely to fail in this case, and how would you diagnosticate the power ic's functions? Any tips?
