Battery connector terminals are missing.
Hey all, I ordered a phone off eBay I pretty tech savy but, this phone was supposed to just have a broken screen. I found out they had a broken battery terminal and tried to repair it and not only that they used a jumper to the fuses for the battery terminals since the trace was gone. But, they some how lost the traces where the 3 fuses are going from the battery terminal. Sorry if I confused anyone its late. My question is. Does anyone have a diagram, picture or can tell me where those traces go to next. I will just make my own with another small piece or microbread board and a couple fuses but, I needed to know where the traces go to after the fuses. Thank you all for all the support!
Edit::::::: just a quick note. I am talking about the fuses that are on the left of the terminal that are lined up next to each other.
Does anyone have any advice
Our advice is this. Do not use jumper wires when trying to overcome iPhone 4 battery connector issues and solder pad issues. I do not believe that the traces are gone, as you suggest. The traces are laminated into the layers of the motherboard so they are not likely gone. We have 'saved' many of these 'repair jobs gone wrong' in our repair shop in Tampa, FL.
In this case, what we would do would be to remove the jumpers. Install new solder pads and overlap solder those pads into the traces. We would carefully remove some of the top laminate layers from the motherboard so the traces are exposed and then overlap solder.
It is a pretty efficient fix for those that have broken the battery terminal connector and pulled up one or more of the solder pads. We have a very high success rate with this repair as we do at least 5-10 of these iPhone 4S solder pad repairs every day.
