Damaged (3) plug: leading to earpiece/motion sensor problems?
Hello everyone! I need troubleshooting with an iPhone 3GS with a dead battery I was given.
I had to disassemble it to swap out a new battery, but while re-plugging the connector labeled (3) I tore away the top right corner of the plastic tab it slides in. The phone still works, but I'm having troubles with the earpiece, motion sensor, compass and proximity sensor. Is this problem related to that connector or is it just something different?
Soldering a new plug is something I just don't want to risk doing*, is there a way to "ghetto fix" it (tape, some foam spacer to restore pressure...)?
*How hard is it, really?
Thanks for your time, any help is MUCH appreciated! :)
Is this a good question?
