Where does this piece go?

hello, I had to replace the power button, i replaced it and everything went fine except that the wifi signal now is very weak. I have this little piece and i don't remember where it goes.

Looking at the videos on youtube I don't find it.

Maybe it's the cause of the wifi weak signal.

I checked everything again but still don't know where to put this small piece:

Is this a good question?

Could that be the reason why the wifi signal is weak?


Possibly only if it provides contact between your antennae and the board.


Where does that piece go? generally the floor of shoddy repair shops being run out of the back of a nail salon... Where did it COME FROM? Where should you put it? See Old Turkey's response...

even after putting the piece my wifi signal is very weak :(


the wifi antenna is that connector that you have to plug into the back side of the board before re-installing it in the frame. You didn't forget did you? Sometimes they just don't quite make connection like they should, maybe unplug and re-seat that antenna.

That antenna can be seen in OldTurkey's picture in the bottom third of the picture almost in the center just above (or in this orientation, to the left of) the battery.


thank you,

this is the antenna, on the side that you can see on the top of this pic it doesn't make any connection with the board. And I didn't lift the antenna. I can't understand why it's not making a good connection with the board.
