Connector 1 socket probably broken, what now?

I have an iPhone 3G, which worked pretty well except for the battery life. I have replaced the battery successfully, however, the screen stopped working as I assembled the device. It is probably due to the connector 1 on the motherboard as it seems a few pins (not sure if I used the suitable word) are a little bent. Now I have been searching the web and I did not find an answer on how to replace or repair this connector?

dabestexan, take a look on here. It will show you what is involved with that repair. I do not advise to do it, unless you have the tools and/or the experience. It is an SMD component and a bit hard to solder:-) Try a TV or Electronics shop to get it repaired. If you have trouble locating one, try hectordtruong on here The connector is available at places like this. Hope this helps, good luck.

Thank you for the advice. I checked the link you provided already. I'm probably going to head to a local repair shop, perhaps they'll know better.

Thanks again, cheers.
