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?

Thanks

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 http://www.ifixit.com/User/235262/hector.... 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.
