Tutorial for iPad Mini charger port replacement – bundle of problems ! old iphone set issue solution

On January 23, 2015, Posted by , In iPhone, With Comments Off on Tutorial for iPad Mini charger port replacement – bundle of problems ! old iphone set issue solution

Just as the title says. Any tutorial that takes you from start to finish on replacing the charging port? Its a soldered on piece instead of a simple typical flex connection.


No Comment so far:

    Hi,

    There is no video ( at least i didnt find one ). But i know its a piece you will have to solder. This is kinda like soldering the iPad mini digitizer flex.

    This is what the part looks like :

    Yeah, I have the part so I know exactly what it looks like. Leave it up to Apple to turn out a piece of garbage just to make more sales because their competitor had something out. Theyre like a crying baby having to own a piece of every pie out there…

    So no one knows how to solder this on properly? Its almost like soldering in the dark. You have to basically guess where the contacts are and hope youre spot on.

    Any takers on this? I can solder the contacts but the connection is so weak that it breaks right off if I move it at all. The original connection Along with that adhesive was so strong, you could easily lift the motherboard by the flex cable.

    Theres gotta be SOMEBODY here thats done this repair before? I mean if there are instructions on how to reball chips, resistors, fuses, etc, how much harder can this be?

    Ive soldered the part on but the solder connection is so weak that if its not already installed and screwed down the the frame, the connection breaks off. Originally Apple uses some tough industrial conductive glue since its a bastard to get it. Apparently it serves double duty.
