Broken ZIF connectors. How do I fix them?

I recently tried taking apart my New 3DS XL only to find out that I'm an absolute idiot. I broke several of the FPC ZIF connectors by lifting them up. My 3DS no longer turns on completely, but instead the power light stays on for maybe three seconds only for it to make an extremely quiet pop and immediately the light turns off. I don't know if the connectors are the reason it no longer turns on correctly, but I would guess so since everything else seemed fine (no obvious torn ribbon cables or partially connected cables).

I would like to know how to repair the connectors. Can I use glue or something to keep the parts I lifted up down? Or should I try my hand at soldering?

you should add photos, so we can see how bad they are bent, as its hard to tell without any photos Adding images to an existing question


@timtomissus I added a few images. They are not ripped off, they just are not snug. I thought that it was strange how they weren't lifting up like the other ones (duh cause they're not supposed to) so I didn't pull up all the way... I lifted e v e r y s i n g l e o n e for a grand total of four.


i think the 402C(i think thats the label on it, its kinda fuzzy) connector is chipped, i've used (fingernail) glue on a battery connector on a Nintendo switch joycon before, and it worked, so you could try that, just be careful and don't cover the metal contacts with glue.


@timtomissus I have no idea how these connectors work, are there diagrams for them? I could try the glue method but I would have no idea what to glue.




this might help

the glue method would work for some time, but might eventually deteriorate/fall off from being dropped, so you might want to soldier them on (or have a shop do it)

also this amazing person might be able to help you even more than i can @flannelist

I don’t know that I have seen these specific ZIF connectors before, but I always dislike ones that hold the cable in with just friction. It is SO easy to do this exact thing.

In a perfect world, I would say replace the connectors. But that presumes soldering experience. And ability to find new connectors. It would be doable without a ton of soldering know how (in my opinion), but they are super prone to melting, so they take some finesse to do properly .

In the absence of your ability to do that, you can attempt to repair these so they are solid enough to hold in the cable. Some good tape may be enough to keep it in place. It’s not a very elegant solution, but it may do the job. Otherwise, you can try to glue them together, but that’s a pretty precision job. I am sure there are better things for this, but I have used superglue and baking soda mixed together for stuff like this in other cases. Just never on anything that small. But mixed together it cures very quickly (it’s a matter of seconds when it goes). And it’s quite strong.
