Title:

Broke off small jumpers when prying battery out of iPhone.

Text:

There were apparently 3 extremely small black boxes that I broke off of the motherboard directly beside the sim card, which controlled my Home and Sleep/Wake buttons. Is there a way I can fix this myself? Should I bring it into a phone repair store? Would a phone repair store even work on this? I came here after seeing another thread that a guy had about the same issue, but it was never resolved and I could find no answers about if it's fixable or how they fixed it.

Here are 2 angles of where they belong on the board, with circles for each

and here are the 3 black boxes between some tape to keep them from flying away.

Edit: Thank you for fixing the images, oldturkey03!

I looked up the logic board layout, and found that the 3 components that broke off were called : Q3, U3, and DZ101_RF
