Broken screen plug.. what now?
While replacing the HD using the iFixit kit, I didn’t heed the warning to be cautious with the monitor cable and one of the legs of the latch got detached from the board. Mistake number 1. So.. I thought I would be clever and it would be easy enough to solder it down. Turns out I’m neither skilled or accurate enough to accomplish this, and I’ve basically gotten the connector all gummed up with solder. It’s a real mess.
So what now? If I find a more skilled friend with hot air reflow abilities, is this part generally available and reasonable to repair? Or is it basically destined for the scrap heap :(
was what I observed after replacing the drive when the monitor failed to work.
the result after many botched attempts to fix and then remove excess solder..
Questa è una buona domanda?
