Why aren't my power button and volume buttons responding after repair?
The power button on my iPod Touch wasn't working (stuck in), so took everything apart and replaced the flex cable. I ripped the old cable in two because I was going to throw the old cable away and I didn't care. Then I tried to desolder the old cable (first soldering experience!), but then I ripped this part off.
I soldered the new cable to the board (I ordered the cable from Amazon because I live in Germany and the European iFixit Store doesn't have any iPod parts). Before that I tried to scratch away the old stuff, which has been under the old cable, on the board. I made it like in the repair guide (something with electrical tape) and afterwards it seemed pretty solid.
Then I put everything back together. When I turned it on (with a power cord attached), it booted, but then I realized, that the power button and the volume buttons were not working. They make the click sound, but there is no reaction.
I fear, that I scratched away too much, so the connections are not working anymore. Is this possible?
It would be great, if I just have to desolder the cable and then solder it again (maybe I made a mistake). Is there a soldering expert/pro?
If I have to exchange the cable again, it's ok. If you have a better store for deliveries in Germany, that would be great!
Is this a good question?
