fix battery connector contacts

Since I am absolutely new to microelectronics and this stuff i managed to make a whole of mistakes on my first replacement.

I solved all problems but now i messed it all up again :).

After taking the device apart and together several times the battery connecter "clip" broke of its contacts. The the device does not turn on anymore. I tried to push it on the ground with battery in it, sometimes it goes on but after releasing the device turns off again.

Now i need to now how to fix this best and I also need to know woch parts do need to be connected.

So the part marked with the red arrow on the picture broke off the ground.

Are the four contacts (marked in green, I only marked one) the only one who need to be connected to the contacts on the ground? Whats an easy way to fix them (prob there is no easy one :) )? Would it be good to braze them to the contacts on the ground or can i just try to stick them with some glue?

edit: oh sorry here is the picture (i took it from somewhere and edited it)

Thanks for your help

i thought this is a pretty simple question

can nobody help me out?


oh i have the part, i propably didnt described that good.

i need to know wich contacts need to be soldered, so i could do it myself, my uncle has an soldering iron...

or at least check if i can do it and if not let it do fro some pros...

or maybe try to connect the contacts with some auminium foil?


take a look at the pictures of the part and how it sits (use one of the guides) it'll show you how it goes in. All 4 contacts need to be soldered to the board. I have suggested the glue because you're working in a pretty small space there. Show your uncle and see what he're going to need a fairly small tip on the soldering iron..1/32" or 1/64" for the best results.

this is a quote from someone who had a similar problem..broken part from logicboard "I used a product from MG Chemicals (a Canadian company) called Silver Conductive Epoxy. It was not cheap as Jeff Stephens suggests. It was $34.99 for .35 oz (14 g). I glued the clip back onto the motherboard. After the curing time of 4 hours, I reassembled the phone. At this stage, it all works."

the other choice is to find the part and take it to a tv repair/phone repair shop and pay them to solder it on properly.

this is the piece, sorry it's a UK link, but I'm sure you'll be able to find it where you live using the title they have given it or search ebay etc for battery fpc.
