What are the gold prongs along the right side of motherboard?
I'm hoping someone can provide a little detail about what I believe to be the grounding prongs on the Nexus 7 motherboard. There are 2 closely spaced at the top left, 2 with more space at the top right, 2 along the upper right side near where the batter plugs into the board, 1 in the middle of the right side, and 1 at the bottom of the right side. All locations are in respect to the device laying face down, charging port at bottom.
For the 2 near the battery input: If one is broken off, how will this affect the tablet? Will it prevent boot, or cause excess battery drain, etc.?
Thank you for any input.
Is this a good question?
