Wifi/Bluetooth unable to turn on, possible broadcom chip damage?

Hi!

A few weeks ago I dropped my Verizon Note 2 SCH-i605 and smashed the screen, requiring replacement of the display. I brought it to a local repair shop, and received it yesterday.

The screen works, but now the wifi/bluetooth functions will not turn on when I press them. They will both slide to "on," and after about six seconds will slide to "off." I don't get any message about activity or errors, they just slide to "off."

I hypothesize that the broadcom BCM4334 wifi/bluetooth chip has been damaged in some way (or removed), so it won't work, period. I opened up the phone and took two pics of the motherboard's sides.

My questions: What does the BCM4334 chip look like on this phone? Where is it supposed to be, so I can determine if it is still there and in one piece?

Thanks!
