Broken Home Button - Mainboard Failure -HELP
The Home Button of my Ipod touch is Broken.
Its very hard to describe, what happened. So I painted some Pictures:
I HOPE You understand what I want to tell you. The Home button itself, is on a little plate. This plate gives a Contact, to the Blue metal Plate on the Mainboard of the iPod. On this blue Colored Place (Of course, its silver in real) is a little metal Spring. This spring is Broken down. I can solder it on the Mainboard, believe me - I can ;) But the Problem is, the Home Button still doesnt work. So I tried to Short circuit the Contact between the Metal Plate and the Bigger Resistor. If you believe me or not, but when I short circuit it, The Ipod thinks I pressed the Home button, The running app will be Closed.
So what now? It seems, there is no Contact between the Metal plate and the resistor anymore. Whan Can I do now?
I dont have a Camera with a high Resolution, that means I can't shot a high Res picture.
Edit: OH HEY! I shot a few pictures, which are - Well, lets say, acceptable.
Edited Picture. YOu can see the Blue place, and the Trace to the Resistor which I meant.
When I short circuit the blue place and the Resitor, the iPod thinks I pressed the Home button.
Is this a good question?
