Home Button "Z" Spring Solder Pad Fell Off
I was given an iPod touch to fix and in the process I managed to break off the "Z" shaped spring that makes the home button work AND the solder pad underneath it. I have looked and looked and I can't find a trace near it to solder onto. Does anyone know where this missing trace is or what an alternate solder point is? I'd rather not go the SBSettings/Acti
the best way to repair is to solder back on
i did this in 6 min.
solder a small beed on the z spring and small beed on the setting plate on the logic board.
then with needle nose pliers hold the spring in place and with your free hand hold your solder iron to the spring for about 4 seconds
this will min automaticly,,
note: this will heat up the connection and turn your ipod on
as soon as your ipod comes on , you have a good connection
best of luck
