Question about AT&T 8525 Smartphone
Today i was outside mowing the lawn and i had my cell att 8525 playing music out of my bluetooth headphones. about a half hour into it the phone just completely shut off. it still wont start up and ive tried every option ive seen. hard reset, soft reset, taking the battery out, nothing happens.
I had a similar problem, 80% battery phone randomly shut itself off and would not start again. no lights if I plugged in charger or anything to indicate phone was getting juice. Found a diagram of the motherboard, located the fuse and operated on my phone. If I touched the 2 ends of the fuse with tweezers and plug in cord, got the red light with no battery. This indicated fuse bad. put a little trail of sodder to connect the 2 ends of fuse and put battery in and presto, I now have working phone with no power fuse. Could burn up some day but was going to be trashed anyway as out of warranty.
