    Default Iphone 3g broken connector number 3

    Hi guys

    Sorry I have posted this on another forum but thought this forum may be more appropriate. I have searched for a similar problem but have failed to find a post.

    So..


    I have a 3g 16gb Iphone which recently stopped working. I opened it up and found that connector number 3 was out of place. I tried to clip it back in, but it wont clip in. The phone works if I hold the connector in place.

    My question is, is there anyway to keep the connector pressed down? masking tape? glue?

    What would you guys recommend?
    Ps. can anyone tell me what the connector 3 is for?

    Thanks alot

    HI
    Found this in my bookmarks Apple iPod and iPhone Dock Interfaces pinout and signals @ pinouts.ru

    Not sure it helps much but it may shed a bit of light on pin 3s function 4u

    Hi

    Thanks for the replies. The pin/connector I am referring to is an internal connector in the iphone. Its one of the labelled ones when removing the screen (it sits under connector 2).

    I'll post a picture when I can (need to get my hands on a camera!).

    Thanks alot

    On the bottom of connector 3, there is a small black plastic tab that flips up 90 degrees with very light pressure. This will allow you to slide the flex cable in snugly. Once inserted all the way in (none of the copper contacts should be showing), then push the plastic flap back down snugly onto the pcb. It should work right now, unless you have damaged the connector itself.

    Connector 3 is for the earphone, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, etc

    Ok so Im not sure if my iphones different or what, but i can flip the white tab up on mine and connector 3 goes into that fine, and then i can close the white tab and it fits there snuggly.

    any other thoughts?

    Hey guys

    Thanks so much for the replies. I think that the black tab you are referring to has been snapped off! There is only a small white plastic tab which flips up.

    does anyone have any ideas as to how about fixing this?
    maybe stick the connector down with tape?!

    can you buy a replacement tab?

    Is this a reason for the phone not to respond at all? THere is no reponse when charging either!

    Thanks!

    I don't think you are missing anything. On my phone the tab is also white.

    Did you bend the cable to much?
    check if cable is right in place and latch cable with the white tab

    No, not at all.

    As it was said before, connection number 3 works for earspeaker and sensors.
    If your phone doesn't charges or responds, check the connection # 4, or the dock connector, the battery connection to the board or the board itself.

    chers
