Yes, since the regulator chip is part of the battery. I ordered a new batter, and while waiting for Amazon to deliver it, I found this post. So I figured I'd try it. It worked so well, I'm still on the original battery and it's working like it was brand new. I'm keeping the new battery as a spare, but knowing myself, if/when I ever need it, I won't remember I have a spare or I won't be able to find it...
My urbane has been in the drawer since 3 years ago. Now when i put it on the charger it doesnt boot and is stuck on the lg logo. If i hard reboot it will display the battery icon and then the lg logo again. Sometimes 2 or 3 times. Any advice? I never wore it for long so the battery isnt worn out hopefully
Thank you very much, my watch which was dormant for almost 3 years is now running beautifully.This ways is for:
- When you connect the watch to the charger, it's turn on and says charging but when removing it from charger it's go black (auto poweroff)
- When you press the power button it's won't boot or go black (auto poweroff) at the "LG" screen
- Old battery
- Soldering Iron and Soldering Wire
- 0 ohm resistance
I have the same issue since a few days. First of thanks for the provided solution. But because removing a potential fuse and bride the contacts doesn't sound really save to me, I want to ask if someone who has done it month ago can report that there are no issues so far.
And if someone had issues please report them, it would be much appreciated and help other people too who will find this Thread in the future.
