Charging port replacement how to
I can not find any videos or manuals for charging port replacement... Please help...
It would be very similar to the iPad mini. Make sure you use enough heat when desoldering the old cable, I heard of an experienced micro-solderer that tore off a bunch of pads doing an Air a few months ago. I don't remember if this device has the kapton tape covering the pads, if it does, take that off first before you desolder.
You will need to remove the logic board and unsolder the old one, then solder on a new dock connector.
Requires soldering. I only found one repair company in my area that would do this. Beyond most DIY'ers ability. I paid $150.
