Failed to Fix Your Cell Phone? Make a Robot

Failed to Fix Your Cell Phone? Make a Robot


Hi. Do you remember when I broke my cellphone by my homemade hand crank charger? (old video) …it’s getting much hotter now. OH, NO, NO NO NO!! NO!!! (idiot) Now, I want to fix my phone. My suspicion is that I blew up the chip that’s responsible for charging and monitoring the battery, and cellphones are generally so compact, that I really have a little hope of fixing it. But I have the following plan. (Gibberish) (ElectroBOOM the turkey?) (royalty free spy themed music) *Open the Cellphone without breaking ANYTHING.* Where the **** are those Philips Screws? (more royalty free spy music owo) *Try to turn it on, and retrieve all the data available* (even more royalty free spy music OwO) snap ****, ****! *Find and identify the broken chip, order new part and replace it.* (why is there so much royalty free spy music?>:C) *Put the phone back together, and it will work like a charm.* (Hah ha, great PSA, ElectroBOOM.) Alas. Reality is much too far from fiction. I have little hope. How do you open this thing anyways? (Opens Phone) Ah! This phone just opens with brute force. I’m well familiar with that. Let’s do it! (Phone dissecting intensifies) Woah. Everything is well glued in here, even the battery. (Even more phone dissecting.) It’s like performing the brain surgery on someone who had a fatal stroke. You know, there’s no chance of survival. But you want to open the head, because you like to see the human brain (You sicken me -.-) (Phone dissection…) By the way, have you ever had a brain sandwich? The texture is kind of like booger, but the taste is out of this world! (More Phone Dissection.) Let’s check the battery. The label says is 3.8 volts Okay, it’s not dead. But it’s under charge it can’t turn on the cellphone, and I can’t charge it either. So, I’m going to solder some wires to the power lines, and power it from my power supply. There is no room for error here. And I have to connect everything back together. Can you imagine? There is the connector… …the port connector. Youth Connector…. 11 Connector… I set my power supply to 4.2 volts. So my cell phone thinks it’s a charged battery. Oh boy… Time to connect it up… Ready? 😀 Awww, ****! Look at that. It’s drawing 1 amp from my power supply. Obviously something is shorted in there. Have to open it up again. -.- Did you know that you could check some things beforehand? So you wouldn’t have to go through trouble of putting everything together? Now if something is shorted and draws a lot of current. it gets quite hot. So it’s easy to find it by tracing the source. You could either touch all the components, owo and find a source painfully. Or you can say hello to my little friend! Not too close… It’s a SEEK thermal camera! It’s actually pretty cool! You plug it into your smartphone, And it shows you a thermal image of everything that’s in front of it. So, I’m going to connect my mother board to the power supply again and look at it with my thermal camera. Looking at the thermal image, you can see that this side of the board is getting quite hot. Which is something under this shield feels like I’m just digging a deeper grave. Look at this. It’s like the entire city of New York in here. Let’s see if my thermal camera can figure out what’s broken. Obviously the heat is coming from that corner of the board… I wonder what it is. (sizzle sizzle>:D) AWUGH, ****!! How hot is it? Wow , 135 Degrees Celsius?! So this black chip is broken, and judging by the number of inductors around it. I assume it’s the main power supply for the board. I took this picture zoomed and enhanced. It’s quite easy to remove the broken chip, using my trusty, hot-air station. It has a hot-air gun that blows very hot air. that’s why I call it the trump Trump seems to be blowing pretty hard now…. ****, stupid Trump! And the chip easily comes off. Wow, just look at this! I checked online and this part is not easily available in single quantities. It’s a magical part, it has 16 different regulators, and battery charger, and a bunch of other circuits. In a 5mm X 5mm area, it packs 155 pins under the BGa package, BGa stands for ball grid array, and it yields, there’s no ****ing way I can change it at home! I would try it though, but I guess at some point you have [to] cut your losses and move on. This…. is gone. But maybe I can salvage something. Oooh, I know! Hi! Today, I’d like to make a robot. The first thing you have to do, is break your dad’s toothbrush. (rip toothbrush D:) This is what you need. A toothbrush, a cell phone vibrator, a coin cell battery, a switch, and some wires. Cell phone vibrator is a DC Motor, with an imbalanced load when it turns it shakes and vibrates. You need to connect things together like this! Have an adult to help you put things together. :3 Is that my toothbrush?>:O FOCUS!!1>:C And now, we’ll hot-glue the circuit onto the back of the toothbrush. OW!!! ;-; Don’t be a baby! XD And now you turn it on. (Cheering) You call this a robot? It’s much better than the cell phone you fixed. (Daughter Outro o.o) nvm XD Subtitles by Greeny (ROBLOX).

  1. I had a coolpad phone its subboard was brocken and also charging port so i opened it and soldiered wires and done i used such phone for months

  3. I love the video…. all except the Trump horse shit. Say what you will about the man but hes already done more then the past few presidents combined! So the fact you're saying shit about him only shows that you know nothing about what's really going on. Dont tell me you're one of those idiots that bitch about him just to bitch and literally have no reason to talk bad about him. lol…if you want to talk bad about a gov official then you REALLY should clean your own house 1st. Canadian gov is whack! lol. Now that's a gov filled with absolute idiots…lol

  8. 5:27
    2006: And now, we’ll use some normal Elmer’s Glue to glue the circuit onto the back of the toothbrush
    2016: And now, we’ll hot-glue the circuit onto the back of the toothbrush
    2026: And now, we’ll use future tape to glue the circuit onto the back of the toothbrush

  9. How do you know that something is shorted in the circuit just by seeing that the current is 1A when you use 4.2V voltage?

  10. 고치다가 연기나고 폭발하고137도에 화상 입고 ㅋㅋ
    조심하세요 그리고 전기 조심하세요 멘날 감전하고 조심하세요 ㅇㅋ?

  11. Find the logic board on ebay and replace or find the same phone with broken screen and put the the good screen on it.

  12. 2 things that got me

    1.

  13. In case it want it, next time you go to China, you can check out the pig brain in restaurant. They are cheap and widely available.

  14. I would like to have an album called 'ElectroBOOM BeatBox'. Mehdi, do you have the RAW copy of it, cause it's so nice, or the song that inspired you to do it?

  15. All of those cracking sounds, combined with the sentence "It's like performing a brain surgery on someone who had a fatal stroke" is actually satisfying and disgusting at the same time. I like it.
