We got a couple of these SP4's in from repair shops where battery stopped working after screen replacement. Most of them had a blown diode in the charger circuit, another one a blown FET. We guessed that the display wasn't switched off when taking it off, causing the LCD backlight power buck converter to spike, but according the repairshops who sent them this was not the case.  So why this is happening, we got no clue at all.

Done an SP3 as well, same sympthoms. Only way to solve it on the SP3 was to replace the battery AND the charge controller chip.

Kinda rubbish, these SP's if you ask me.

If you encounter this problem, check the two Skottky Diodes in the picture. (40 Volts / 5A). Voltage over the diode from anode to kathode should be around 0,2V. If higher, then replace. (Needless to say you have to measure this in Diode mode, with a disconnected battery). Also we encountered problems where 1 of the FET's on the control board of the battery itself went into a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latch-up|latch-up] state. This can be solved by shorting drain and source shortly. (Be carefull!) Hope this helps someone.
