Either S2MPS18 or S2MPS13. I used the second one to fix it but did not work. My Galaxy Alpha died and is still dead - The worst is that I lost ALL of my files on it, and I still cry inside me about that.

Can you please mention the charging IC series name? By the way, what about your alpha? Are you using it?

Also had the same problem years ago, I went to a Samsung authorized repair company, changed the Power IC module but unfortunately did not fix - The phone could not turn on. The worst was that I did not make any backup of my photos or any other person...
