Connector #1 seems to snap, but still comes loose

Any tips on getting connector #1 (powers the LCD display) to firmly connect? I've filled around, and can't get it right (though phone working now, just worried it will work its way loose). Thanks!

Is this a good question?

Hi rockwood,

Based on my experience, you need to hear it snap into place.

Here is the way I close my iPhone 3G after having it opened: While I am holding the upper part in an angle of about 30 degrees with my left hand (I am right handed), I take an iPhone/iPod opening tool (right hand) and press it on the connector #1. It usually snaps in.

Don't worry, since once it does that, it usually does not get loose (unless you would drop the iPhone).

Steffen, thanks so much. I think the connector must be slightly damaged, but after a lot of trial and error, i finally got it to connect. Now my problem is to to firmly connect the earphone cable. I have an Asian version where the connector slides in horizontally. Guess i need some really special tweezers!


Hi rockwood, thank you for your reply. Are you able to take a picture of the earphone cable/connector? I am interested how the Asian version looks like.
