Dock connector works just when heated

Hi! I've got the common problem with the dock connector of my ipad: no volume control, mute speakers; it shows only "Apple TV" and "Dock connector" on the airplay available devices. it "believes" that's connected to a docker connector.

The only way to make it work is blowing some hot air with an hair dryer, but after 5 minutes the volume control disappears again.

Have I to replace the dock flat cable or can I try something different?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
