ipad 4 no power


hi i'm willi,


i am trying to repair my ipad 4 wifi for a while. it doesnt power on now. before this complete breakdown the ipad randomly rebooted. i have tested several voltages and other values around vcc_main on the board.


PPVBUS_PROT 5V
PPVCC_MAIN 2.3 - 2.5 V alternating
ACT_DIO 0.2 V
D8100 Reverse Voltage 0.152V
PPVCC_MAIN to GND 1.345kOhm


sadly all capacitors look create either.
i really need some expertise from your community.

hi, thanks for your help.

Unfortunately I don't own a usb test meter, but i already connected power supply to VCC_MAIN to check for shorts.
Sadly there is no heating at any component at the board.
I also tried to go in the dfu mode, but either the computer or the ipad react in any way.

Further i noticed a switching noise, when the usb cable is plugged at the lightning connector.
I saw the picture you sent, do you recommend to unsolder the two capacitors? what do you mean with checking the jumper?

Thank you very much, i am willing to unsolder every component to get this stuff work again

the 2 capacitors are for to stabilize the charge
they can create a disturbance to the line , what do you mean with checking the jumper? it's a filter, check with tester / multimeter if has continuty , if no desolder and jumper.
another possibility from noise could be charging line so replace dock ( can to be in short) and in sequence ,carefully replace usb charging ic (u2) 1608A1.

usb meter I warmly recommend it costs little and helps a lot

thanks for your assessment.

Shortly before i started to unsolder the capacitors, i gave the board a last try.
Surprisingly the behavior changed, now i get

PPVBUS_PROT 4.8V
PPVCC_MAIN 3.46 V stable
VDDQ=VDDCA 1.93 V
VDD2 1.01 V
VDD1 1.79 V

and the A6X Chip is hot
and the PMU (U8100) is very very hot

the iPad is still unresponsive at the display and the pc
the switching noise is gone by the way

do you think i should still unsolder the capacitors?

i will have a look at such usb meter, now i can say, that the power supply heats up a little bit
