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.
