Fix Flex cable # 7 connector

I washed my Iph 3gs 16gb. I've replaced the battery, the LCD and the antennae assembly. Unfortunately taken it apart an re-assembling the 'motherboard' #7 connector is no longer connecting the #7 flex cable. Do you know of a fix for this or how much to repair? Thank you

i am in the same boat! my male end for #7 (on the logic board) is all buggered up. is there a bypass soldering option?


Sometimes if the damage isn't bad you can tweak it so that it still snaps in. Not always the case though. Best bet is to remove and replace. I've done a few for people, but when it isn't bad I can just bend it back for them. Post pics if you can?

If you messed up the connector on the board, it can be desoldered and a new one soldered back on. You're going to need a microscope, a very thin tipped iron, and some patience though. That general area is fragile and if one of the inductors get knocked off, you could lose your reception.
