So, firstly we have to check the board diagram that how much voltage ipad need to charge and then check with multimeter. We got 3.8V rather than 5V which is not sufficient to charge the ipad.
We are not getting the right voltage so we first will replace the charging port and check it how it goes. Ipad Pro 9.7 A1673 charging port are micro soldering. If you have similar problems please bring your ipad at Applefix Hamilton.
How to remove and solder the new charging port on iPad Pro 9.7 A1673 ?
First thing what we will be doing is to tint the pads. Why we are tinting these pads so that we will bring the temperature down . It’s easy to melt them when we are taking it out. Then tint the pads. After that set the right temperature to remove the charging port. Please be patient while removing it don’t pull it hard. It will come out easily if you are using the right temperature.
Next thing what we will be doing is solder break so that we will clean the pads. Put isopropyl alcohol and clean it. Make sure there is no glue left and cleaned properly. Put the new charging port & some flex and solder it back.
Now we have to check it again how much voltage we are getting after replacing the charging port. We are getting the same voltage that is 3.8V. So there is no difference even after replacing it. Next step is to replace the u2 ic or charging ic (part no. 1610A3).
