Well, if you are really confident in your soldering abilities, you could attempt to re-solder the connector back onto the logic board. Otherwise, I think a new logic board is in order. It's a very frustrating situation you are in, one I have been in myself before. Here is the guide, and here is the part.

but what did you do???


Well, i mistakenly used the incorrect tool to lift the brown tab up, and broke off the entire connector. I haven't yet replaced the logic board, but that will be the necessary next step.


ok ..good look
