Logic Board: FAN CONNECTOR popped off.

I popped off the fan logic board connector instead of sliding out the ribbon connector from the fan. Is this replaceable or do I have to get a whole new logic board?

(I spilled coffee on this beast, and broke it in the process of trying to clean it up. double damage depression.)

Get help next time. Clearly you shouldn't be attempting repairs until you have more knowledge and experience. Maybe get some experience on totally dead, scrap circuit boards.

Never have food or drinks any where near your work space, etc.

Thanks for the intention to help. I'm still looking for an answer to my question - and didn't find this very helpful as you may have assumed incorrectly my experience and context of the issue. I assure you no food/drink was near me when repairing. Thanks for your help.

@markbookpro it is absolutely not necessary to replace your logic board; this is very easily repairable for someone who does microsoldering repair. Either by replacing the broken connector, or worse case scenario if replacement parts are nowhere to be found (happens sometimes), connecting the cable directly to the board. We’ve done it before and it is pretty straightforward.

Even for someone who is not a microsoldering technician, but good enough with a “macro” soldering iron, it can be pulled off. Provided your hands are not shaky and you do not knock adjacent components off.

If you don’t want to venture with this repair, you can mail it in to a reputable micro soldering tech. They can fix it and even replace corroded components if any are to be found following the liquid damage it has suffered. Some of them contribute to the forum here like @oldturkey03 said. Depends on where you are located.

@markbookpro

the connector can be soldered back on. If you tore the solder pads you can fairly easy run jumper to either the trace or the last componet before the connector. You will have to know how to solder small components etc. If you do not have the tools or the skills, check with users like this https://www.ifixit.com/Business/29688/TC... and see if they can help. Of course this will depend on your geographic location. Pictures will always help to give you a definite answer. Post some images of the damaged board with your question. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question for that

Update (07/24/2018)

@markbookpro thanks for the images. Yes, it does look repairable. Just like @rany said, all you would need to do is to get in contact with people that do microsoldering. It’ll be a lot cheaper than replacing the board.

Unfortunately I can not state whether or not this can be repaired. Can you post a picture of the board where the connector was removed? Depending upon the condition, it may be repairable. Also post a picture of the connector from the side that sits on the board. Most likely the connector is salvageable. The condition of the pads on the board will determine whether or not it can be fixed.
