Possible to fix logic board connector?

I was replacing the lightning port on my iPhone in order to fix a microphone that wasn't working. Unfortunately, I accidentally smashed a few pins on the connector where the cable for the lightning port/microphone/headjack etc. plugs into the logic board. I'm wondering if this can be fixed as the rest of the phone is fine.

If it can't be fixed, does anyone know how to charge an iPhone battery outside of the phone? I have a lot of pictures I'd like to get off of the device, but the battery is dead and so is the charging port... :(

Also if it can't be fixed, any ideas on what I should do with the phone to get the most money out of it that I can?

Yes, It can be fixed. You will need to take it to a Phone repair shop that does Micro Soldering to solder on a new FPC connector. If you can't find a local shop, you can always use the mail in service many of the techs here on Ifixit provide :)

What would you expect a repair like that to cost? Thanks for the info!


One thing I have noticed in this industry is the wide range of fees charged for the exact same service. I can't quote what others charge for this service but I would "Guestimate" in the $50 range based on my fees. However, do your homework and ask questions. Most reputable shops have a No Fix / No charge policy and offer some kind of warranty on their repair. It's always best to find a Reputable Local shop for your convenience but Micro soldering isn't a common service in most areas and finding a Mail in service is common in most cases.

If you found my answer helped you, please mark it as chosen solution as it may help others with similar issues and questions...and if not, and you have more questions... feel free to post them back.

Definitely do a backup over the air (Cloud) since you can't plug into Itunes to protect your files
