Ok, I have 3.9v CHGR_ACIN BUT AM NOT GETTING PIN 14 CHGR_ACOK. Had some bad capacitors C7020,c7021,c7022 also bad q7085. replaced all of them. Still have no 3.3v on pin 14 of U7000. Looks like other voltages are correct. could it be a blown U7000?
Have not replaced it yet.
By the way, thank you so much for describing the path. that helps a lot. I was working on the Q7085 side not the other one. I couldn't get voltage through the Q7085 so I replaced it, then I was able to track voltage down to resistors, to the U7000 pin 27/28 CHGR_CSI_P, CHGR_CSI_N, CHGR_AGATE
PIN 1 = 14.8V, PIN 2 = 16.65V, PIN 26,27,28 15.95V
If CHGR_ACIN is present and CHGR_DCIN is present and the resistance between pins 27/28 and pins 17/18 adds up to what the sense resistors' sum is, I would say time to replace U7000. Stay away from SI7149DP that thing is always fine, you can dip it in battery acid coca cola cat piss and beer and light it on fire and it will still work!
the chip has more load on it than anything else since PPBUS_G3H powers the entire machine, and it also has to deal with knockoff chargers and ripple on PP3V42_G3H as well as its own issues when there's water.
