  • i need ur advice about my samsung galaxy y duos gt s6102 android device. It’s not charging or detecting data cable but it’s still powering on. But getting heated within seconds. I disassembled it and found that it’s the maxim power ic which is heating. I gave it to the samsung service centre and now they’re saying that the entire board is shorted and i have to change it. Is this right? Is it the only solution? Because the power ic is the only component which heats, i doubt that the problem is related to power ic or capacitors near it. Pls help

    • Well the power IC also gets heated up when the board is short. They might be correct. If your phone is under warranty then let them do that else buy power IC and replace it with the older one and check, if the problem persists then indeed the problem is with your motherboard.
