How do I recreate connectivity when PIN are broken


I have broken the header pin in the logic board of the IPOD classic 4th generation when I have changed the hard drive, the one that clips with the little connector with the ribbon cable. These pins were very very thin. Do you have any ideas ?

Due to this, the ipod is locked on hold, but otherwhise everything else is working.

Here are 2 more pictures :


The 10 very very thin little pins are broken so now there is no connection between picture 1 and the connector in picture 2. The connector is so small


What do you recommand ? Thank you, Michael

Here is a link to see the picture of the connector before it was disconnected.


It was soldered with the logic board.

I will post a second picture to show the empty slot.

Thank you very much for your help,

Show us a picture of the damage---connector damage is always repairable.

I had a similar problem with the digitizer on my iphone 5s and unfortunately couldn't fix it on my own. To my understanding, you either need to take it to a specialist or call it there, which is unlucky because it's such a tiny part that makes such a large difference. From what I learned from being at IFixit, you can try carefully to bend the leads out or clean it, which may or may not work. Best of luck, I feel your pain (RIP Iphone 5s)

RIP? Just send it out or learn to microsolder---this is a day one soldering project!


I actually really want to learn, but this darn school thing and working at IFixit, along with some other projects are taking up all my time
