iPhone 6 water damage with VCC_MAIN short

Hi all!!

I have an iPhone 6 that took a bath in the toilet. Before it turns forever into a “$@$*!&” phone, I started to repair it but now I have few problems that maybe some good users can give some help.

Here are the steps I did so far:

1 - I have disassembled the main board and took all the EMI shields out. The damage is clear and I could see a lot of corrosion marks in some main capacitors.

2 - I started cleaning the hole board with a good and proper solution and everything looks fine now.

3 - Then I have tested the VCC_MAIN and it was short. I tested with a good power supply with the current limit set to 1.5amps and it was obviously short because the power supply reaches immediately the limited current.

4 - I took a look on the VCC_MAIN line and I found some dead and short capacitors which I have removed already.

Q1 - Now I have no short anymore but the VCC_MAIN resistance is between 20 and 30 ohm. Is this a normal value? Before it was 0 ohm = short.

5 - after that I tried to power the board again and the current dropped to 0.6amps, which obviously means that there's still a problem elsewhere.

6 - I have found that the U1501 was heating (no other IC was getting hot) by dropping some flux over it, even with those 0.6amps.

7 - then I have followed all the capacitors in the power lines supplied by that IC and I have found some more shorts which I have also removed, but still I am having a short somewhere and I dont know where.

Q2 - should I remove the IC U1501 and test the VCC lines before I end with no caps?

Q3 - After removing that IC the VCC_MAIN should give a higher resistance value?

What would the next steps?

Thank you very much and if you could help me I would really appreciate.

You might want to bring it to a local phone and computer company. Or you can ask Apple for help.

VCC_MAIN at 20-30 Ohms is too low. You should be reading approx. 0.350V in Diode Mode. You still have a partial short that you will need to find. Even if one cap on a line is short, they will all look short. Finding a VCC_MAIN short can be a pian in the you know what.

It may be another cap but if U1501 was in bad shape, I would remove it to see if that removes the short. Otherwise, You will have to remove stuff one by one until you find it.

Challenge accepted. thank you.

I'll update next week.


Please update us as you move through the process.



After removing U1501 I have VCC_MAIN resistance at around 480 Ohms and 0.331V in diode mode.

Are those good readings?

Will it boot without this IC?

As far as I know, U1501 is an IC for powering the display ...

Thank you :)
