Wifi ribbon cable broken. Connector stuck in motherboard!
My wifi has been not working for a while now so I finally decided to open up my mbp to see what was going on.
when I opened to back of the machine I noticed that the wifi ribbon cable was not connected to the motherboard. Upon closer inspection I noticed that the actual connector that was supposed to be attached to the ribbon had come off and was still connected on the motherboard. The connector fits inside of the female part of the connector which makes it very hard to remove. Is there a technique I can use that will not harm the part of the connector that is still part of the motherboard?
I have attached a couple of pictures (sorry for the poor quality). One photo is of the ribbon connector with the missing connector piece and the other photo is of the connector piece stuck in the motherboard. I’ve tried to pry it out with tweezers but as it is fully surrounded by the other part of the connector I can’t remove it.
i’ve been thinking about putting a small amount of glue on the back and trying to pull it out that way. Thoughts?
any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
