I managed to destroy pins on front camera port

I messed it all up they are all bent out of shape, do I just throw this mother board away or can this port be repaired?

AND does not putting right screws in right holes of the shield really mess things up? If so, why?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

As for the front facing camera port, yes, this can be repaired. However, you will need a board-specialist to solder a new connector. This shouldn't cost any more than $45-$75, depending on the shop.

The screw placement matters on some models as the lengths of these screws are often different. If a longer screw is inserted into a shorter hole, the end of the screw essentially screws into the board, causing disruption to the circuits underneath.
