That is a possibility, I will check with people and see if it is a netflix and safari issue alone.
I have heard of this same issue on both 1466 and 1932, so I just wanted to see if maybe, both machines were running the same MacOs version #.
I have seen several of these machines that exhibit graphical glitches (typically green) while playing full screen video. The machine will otherwise behave normally with no other issues. I suspect this is either one of 2 things.
A. Driver issue related to a specific MacOs version
We use Unigine Valley to stress test machines. No issues software wise crashing on known good hardware out of thousands of machines.
Was U8900 replaced before or after replacing the GPU? This could be a internal trace issue between GPU / VRAM / U8900 or bad / cracked ball under VRAM.
600-615C is too hot!!!!!!!!!!!!
I use 430C at 120C. 1-2 min is too long, you should have most everything pulled within 30 seconds.
See this video. This is a extreme case. These chips are likely the hardest to remove on the board due to the heatsink. https://youtu.be/_QC_KcnPQmE?t=274
This is a bit confusing. You did replace the SMC on this board? With one with a ripped pad?
This is obviously SMC related. What is SMC_RESET_L?
As far as the keyboard issue goes, is PP3v3_S3_PSOC present on pin 22 and 49 of U5701?
I have had much better luck with these. I have done many, and none have come back so far. I've caught a few in testing that have still done it after the replacement, but so far none have come back.
How I test these.
At least 1hr of prime 95 large FFT and unigine valley running at the same...
SMC batlow should go high with a battery or the use of a 85w charger. 4.9v isn't right. That is a 3.3v signal. Are your meter batteries low?
That reminds me. Are you using a real 85w charger with this?
When the fan spins, does PLT_RESET_L go high?
If you hold the power button down when it is doing this, does it start up normally?
My very first board repair would do this, and you held the power button down, and it would start normally, ended up being a bad ISL.
Had another machine that would do this, and power on normally if the power...
It's normal. Of course it's going to get hot. Nothing is shorted.
If you still have 5v when plugged in, plug in the USB C the other direction. Does it work? Something is likely messed up with the CD3215 replacement or the redriver replacement.
OK, let's slow down here.
You said it worked with a battery, and now you say PPBUS G3H is shorted.
Does it turn on?
If PPBUS is shorted and the CPU is getting hot then this is done for.
If it turns on and you get image you are getting trolled by your meter.
