I tried desoldering my dock connector flex cable and this happened..
This is my first time trying to repair an ipod touch, and I'm trying to replace a battery and my dock connector flex cable. I tried desoldering the flex cable for the dock connector and the following image links depict the tradgedy that has occurred. I used pen flux, put a little solder on the joints, then applied wick...I thought I was doing it right when I was taking off the cable with heat but then the region over the pads wouldn't come off. I know I probably shouldn't have done this but I tried desoldering again to get the rest of the tape off and this is what i ended up with...how can I save this?
Is this a good question?
