    Default iPhone 3gs Flex Ribbon -Number 1- Broken while replacing digitizer

    Hey, I'll describe you what happened, One day i was running down my drive, i was wearing tracksuit bottoms so they were bouncing arround, in my pocket was my iPhone.. It fell out of my pocket and the screen then cracked on the floor! Oh Dear!

    I then phoned apple but unfortunately they couldn't help me, so i purchased this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...#ht_2856wt_947 I replaced the digitizer and everything was complete, THE MOMENT AWAITED! I turned my iphone on, but the LCD Was not working..

    I Re-opened my iphone, and found a tiny little gold bit of wire, i took a closer look and found that the plug on cable number 1 was broken, the tiny little chips in the cable had been dislodged, HELP!

    Thankyou ever so much!!
    Nils

    Looks like you will need a new LCD, the connector is just too small to repair. Good news is the LCD is much easier to swap out. Make sure you get the edges sealed around LCD when completing the job, even use extra tape or you will get dust creeping in over time. Think yourself lucky it was the cable and not the male clip on the board or you would be humped.

    Nicely photographed. You should be able to flip that part off, leaving the male part on the board. A new LCD will sort you out as I said:-)

    Ditto, a new LCD is needed and remove the old LCD's connector parts. Easy fix.
