PP_VDD_Main Short to Ground 0 ohms resistance

I have a 0 ohm resistance short to ground on VDD_main. Because there is no resistance I can’t find the cause of the short with my heat camera. There are only 2 things that come to mind.

# A physical short has been caused by some kind of debris or misplacement which I just can’t find even with cleaning and searching thoroughly, or

  1. A surface mount component has failed causing a 0 ohm short to ground. Is this likely and what type of component could cause this?

I’ve injected current to different points. With 0 resistance there is just no energy loss to detect heat :(


Have you removed the shields? What model board is it Intel or Qcom? Have you tried freeze spray instead of your thermal cam? Was the board water damaged and maybe put into a microwave?


@imicrosoldering Intel board with all shields removed. Phone failed on Q2101. I removed it but can't solve VDD_main short now


If Q2101 failed you should defiantly remove Tigris. It has probably been damaged and most likely the cause of the short.


@imicrosoldering Yep, One step ahead of you. I've removed Tigris also. Still 0 ohm resistance short to ground

Usually, the culprit for most shorts is a capacitor as they are placed between VDD and ground. However, there are hundred of capacitors on the PP_VDD_MAIN line so you want to avoid having to remove them all to find the short. Understanding the history of the device and the circumstances leading up to the failure may give you some clues as to where to focus your efforts.

You can also try to apply a lower voltage, say 2V directly to the PP_VDD_MAIN line, bypassing the Tristar/Tigris circuitry, as well as most IC’s. That may allow the thermal camera to pick up a heat signature from the offending component. You can also leave the device in this condition for a short while to see if anything “lights up” because with enough time, even a small trickle current will heat up the offending component a bit.
