Easiest way to replace an FPC connector?
I replaced my display assembly on my HTC One (M7) and I have accidentally broken 2 FPC connectors: the one for the display and the one for the micro-USB port. I've been digging arround the webs for the past few hours and it seems that I can order the connectors separately from a few websites. However, I am not sure whether I can replace them or not. I've seen a guy on YouTube replacing the FPC connectors on a One X using a heat gun to desolder them. Long story short, I don't have a heat gun and even if I did, looks like a tough job.
Now, to the point: is there any "easy" way of replacing those connectors on the motherboard?
Also, as the bottom part of the connectors is not damaged, would there be any way to just place the top part on top and make sure it stays there?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Is this a good question?
