Broken button cable assembly socket?

While putting my Iphone 5s back together I miss aligned the button cable connecter and bent/broke off half of the connecter.

( dont have picture of phone in question) I was quoted $125 to resolder the socket, I was wondering if it would be possible to resolder it myself for less? Alternatively, if I could not, is there somewhere that will do the repair for less?

Thanks for the help,

It depends on which specific connector? Show a picture of the damage and I can send you a quote.



As I said I don't have a picture and I don't have access to the phone. Do you do the repairs on your own or as part of a company?


If you are not able to take a picture, then I won't be able to help you. Your question is too vague "button cable connector" is not an iPhone part. I own a repair company.


The picture I posted is of the cable I'm referring to. Can you see the picture?


The picture above shows the power flex being removed by a plastic spudger. If you are referring to the power flex fpc socket connector underneath---assuming no other damage to the tiny components in the area, then that is something I could fix for you for less than $125....but honestly I'll pass. I'm not sure we'd be a good fit.

If you give it a shot yourself, you'd need a good stereomicroscope capable of magnification to 45x, a 0.2 mm soldering iron tip, some low melt desoldering alloy, plenty of flux and a ton of patience.

Sometimes the bent pins of the actual connector can be massaged back into place--depending on the damage. Site unseen it is hard to advise.
