A: The main board (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 main board.
Q: How can the main board gets damaged?
A: The main board can get damaged from shocks (drops), dropping into water or even from pressure. Also, mainboard damage can also be caused by charging with a poor quality charger/cable. Damage to the main board can arise even there was no physical damage.
Q: What happens when the main board is damaged?
A: As the main board is the core part of the device, once it is damaged, it can make functions play up. The functions affected depend on the location of the damage.
Q: How do I know if the phone does not work due to damage to the device’s parts or main board damage?
