Broke the welded subowoofer connector

While I was replacing my optical drive by a second hard drive, I unfortunately completely disconnected the subwoofer and left speaker connector, even the little part which was welded to the logic board.

As a result, only my right speaker is functional.

I don't know if I can repair it on my own, as it involve re-welding a component.

Does I have to buy a new subwoofer and/or a new logic board ?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi, have the same problem

Is it possible just to glue socket to the board and align contacts?




I have the same problem... Did you fixed it?

Mourad, this will depend on your damage. If the traces are damaged it'll be difficult to solder. Any of the soldering to the board should be done with the right tools and the right knowledge. Post an image with your question that shows the damaged pieces for a better answer.

It's possible

You can try, but I would recommend a new logic board. However, if you still have 1 functional speaker, why not just keep that? By the way, it's called "solder", not "weld"
