Missing part on motherboard, next to blue inductor?
Hi all, newby here! I am a R&D engineer in photoprinting and have good basic electronics understanding and skills, however, I am not able to complete this next task. So If any willing to help out and I can send to then GREAT!
My elderly mum has a 3GS, and had it second hand with no issues until yesterday when it slipped from her lap onto a carpeted floor! Immediately she began to have searching for signal issues. I guessed the blue inductor chip, but gave it a shake before hand an could hear the tiniest rattle. On opening and removing the screen immediately I could see some bodged repair area next to the blue inductor, right next to this is either another blue inductor or similar part, this is missing and the area has been 'soldered' at some point. I found no part but a tiny solder bead rolling around. It is far too small for my 50+ year old eyes to sort so can any one help or direct me to someone who will near Wolverhampton/Telford or I can post board to you?
Picture added. Thanks for the pointer of how to upload pics. The 2 small squares show, green part there, red part missing!
Is this a good question?
