I'm getting strange overheat while any charging (powered off, turned on, on stock even on custom rom, after full wipe, on pc or wall charger etc. ) on the display location as per picture. It's really hot even saying battery overheat error, while battery is not the problem when checked.

Would someone know please, what is the problem or detective part?
Naturally it goes to warranty repair, but still it is very odd...

Thank you.

That is the location of the battery terminals, check they are clean and not bent.

Thanks but battery terminals are located little bit higher... I mean really the location close above the menu button, like 50mm from menu button...

CPU and GPU should be located here.. So it's clear, something is wrong with them..

Seems to be diode ZD701,

Warranty was not accepted due to the oxidation. End of the story, owner replaced whole board.
