Microsoft Surface 4 Pro will not power on have tried multiple things

Hello, I was recently tasked to replace the battery on a Microsoft Surface 4 Pro due to the fact that when the device was disconnected from the power source the device would turn off. I have successfully replaced the battery and from all my empirical evidence I believe the battery is working and is connected properly. I tested the voltage of the battery using my multimeter, and tested the voltage of the battery through an IC connected on the logic board however when I press the power button the device does not turn on, ie. I do not see any response from the screen.

When I plug in the charger to the device I see a white LED light up. so I assume the connection from the battery to the the charger, ie the power rails are working properly, so the only thing I can think of is the power button is faulty.


On this particular model it appears the power button is integrated to the left speaker if I’m looking at this properly. I don’t mind spending the 10 dollars + shipping to get a new left speaker / power button, but I would like to make certain that the power button is the issue.


Is there a way I can bridge connect some pads on the board to simulate the power button on this device?


I see where the power button connects on the logic board and if I could bridge a couple of pads to see if the device would turn that would help immensely.


Any other suggestions are greatly welcomed.

According to the following you are correct on the left speaker/power button connection.

Just a thought. If you remove the speaker is there any contact points for testing continuity with a multimeter on the on/off switch?

looking again at the traces for the power button ribbon cable it looks like there's only one trace that goes from the button the board and if i had to take a guess the button pulls the connection to ground.
