Hope this helps, good luck.

Additional Info

Abnormal Acceleration,Gyro Sensor part

Check the Voltage

C238 = 2.8V

C239 = 2.8V

C237 = 1.8V

If No then Resolder U205 or REflow U500

If Yes

Check the Voltage

R460 = 1.8V

R461 = 1.8V

If No Resolder U500 or Reflow UCP400

If Yes

Acceleration,Gyro Sensor operate correctly?

If No REflow or Replace U205 using a Heatgun or change Logic board.

The resistors and capacitors are marked on the second image, including the schematic of where to measure. Again, hope this helps.

Thank you. Now I'm thinking it's a software issue because it looks fine. ofcourse I can't see inside it.


Do you have a multimeter? There are a few things you can check. It's a bit tricky but not impossible. You will also have to know how to read a schematic.
