- Mainboard damage
Another possibility is mainboard damage.
Q: What is the mainboard?
A: The mainboard (motherboard) is the core part of the hardware and controls all functions of the phone. Every part of the phone with a function is connected to this mainboard.
Q: How can the mainboard gets damaged?
A: The mainboard can get damaged from shocks (drops), dropping into water or even from pressure. It can also be caused by charging with a poor quality charger/cable. Damage to the mainboard can arise even if there is no physical damage.
Q: What happens when the mainboard is damaged?
A: As the mainboard is the core part of the device, once it’s damaged, it can make functions play up. The functions affected depend on the location of the damage.
Q: How do I know if the home button is not working because of damage to the part (button cable) or mainboard?
A: There is no way to physically find out if the mainboard got damaged or not unless you test the device with a new part (button cable) and see if it is working or not. With this matter, we can help you through a quick inspection and can tell you if it will be solved by replacing the part or not.
Q: What should I do if it is a mainboard damage?
A: If it’s a mainboard issue, don’t worry. We can fix this issue at Happytel. Most button related problems arising from the mainboard can be repaired by micro soldering in our Happytel Head office. Our success rate for this procedure is 85%.
