Settings -> Privacy -> Analytics & Improvements -> Analytics Data -> Search for “thermalmonitord” If there’s a log there that says “thermalmonitord returned not alive” then try replacing the charging port

If I were you I would take it apart to try to clean it, since you have nothing to lose if the screen is cracked and it won’t turn on. You will need a hobby knife (about $10) and a...
