    I plugged my phone to charge and it started overheating. When I realized that the phone was so hot, I immediately unplugged the phone,removed the battery and opened the back of the phone for it to quickly cool down. I realized that the pins of the phone for the battery where somehow touching each other. After it cooled down I tried to turn on the phone but it didn't work. I fixed the battery pins and plugged the phone to charge then I tested the phone's battery pins with a voltmeter. But it didn't show any value. Please is there any way out?

    My guess is that you'd have to replace the whole motherboard.

    As already mentioned something on the motherboard probably fried, any component in the device could be shot.

    Unfortunately you probably need a new phone and any data that wasn't backed up would be lost.

    Which device? Did you get a overheat warning on the device?
