    So, i have always had BBs, i didnt have that much money and i got a "new" Q10 as a personal present.

    I charged the phone but the charger was broken and it exploded when i plugged it, let me say that it was also connected to the phone,

    When i say that it exploded i mean that the electrical security switch jumped leaving that room with no electricity. Since then my q10 has been broken.

    If i buy a new motherboard could i fix it?

    If the phones new you have a 1 yr manufacturer warranty from Blackberry themselves.

    The motherboard is the one part you cannot buy.

    I got my Q10 wet washing the car. Not really wet, but a few drops got in the USB or HDMI ports. When I dried it out, the top lock button no longer worked. I did a bit of research and found this can happen when there is a problem with a diode on the main board. I found a Q10 with a broken screen on KIjiji for $60 and swapped that board into my Q10.

    Get yourself a set of little screwdrivers on ebay for less than $10 and you'll be able to replace damn near anything on the phone--keyboard, screen, speaker, camera etc. I've done my keyboard and screen/speaker myself and spent a total of $35 including the tool set!

    The screwdrivers as a set are T1-T8 and I got them on ebay for $2 free shipping. Better than just buying one for $1

    150 off of Craigslist, fixed it myself with the toolkit from crackberry (I had bought a set off of ebay, but they were a soft metal, and the sizes weren't accurate). Had to fix it because when swapping housings I damaged the pins on the motherboard for my screen
