Saturday my S7 Edge BSODed:
I picked Up my Phone but it wouldnt turn on the display. no reactions to any button or combo. LED flashed blue like a notification.

I let it run the battery low so it turned off (LED off).

It doesnt load anymore.

I disassambled it and replaced the battery unit hut no change.

Is the mainboard broken? Can it be replaced, i.e. I found some parts at ali..? any hope for this, maybe somebody who has gone throughbthis too??

Update:
I had to replace the logicboard, so either CPU / RAM / flash storage are broken. I bought another S7 edge with a broken screen for a few bucks got get the "spare parts" and followed common tutorials for disassembly. Phone is back to live now but wirh the "new" IMEI + flash drive.

I was lucky I had Google Backup enabled so I didn't lose any important information.

Thank you Steve, unfortunately thats ine if the combos I tried without making any progress..

Vol Up + Power

Vol Down + Power

Vol Down + Home + Power

pressing for 10..30..60 seconds - nothing comes to life.

Loaded the battery for hours (without getting a loading screen).

replaced the battery and retried all above again: No changes.

I think smth inside must have worn out...mainboard maybe?

I guess I will get my hands on a device with i.e. broken display to harvest sone spare parts...


any other ideas are very werlcome!
