Replacing front panel. Pressure contact came off of logic board.
Replacing the front lcd/digitizer and glass with a unit I bought from ifixit.com due to a fall and major glass break.
Teardown went fine. The front install went fine. (love those side screws and washers).
When I went to put in the logic board, I found that a contact piece had come off the very top of the logic board. This piece makes contact with the outer frame.
Here are front and back pictures of the clip/contact piece and our logic board:
I'm very nearly certain that this has to be reattached. I'm also pretty certain that it needs to be soldered so that it is conductive to the logic board.
I am not at all experienced soldering, so I'm wary of trying this. Anyone have any experience with liquid solder or conductive adhesives?
At this point, the phone is useless as it was when it fell in the parking lot - so soldering on the logic board might have to be something I attempt.
So my questions are:
1. Anyone know of a liquid solder or glue that will work well?
2. Anyone have a good source for a replacement logic board? (we've already got the cost of the screen invested, so we may have to spend further)
3. Anyone know exactly what this piece does and maybe I don't need to do anything?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer some advice. I appreciate your time.
Is this a good question?
