Press the power button to turn on the phone. The current reading isn’t changing. It can be preliminarily judged that the main power supply line of the motherboard is faulty.

Open the schematic. We can see that L5039 is not only directly connected to the main power supply line VBAT but also connected to the power IC U8031.
