    Hello!

    A cracked LCD on a friend's screen led me to doing a repair. However, while the screen works just swell, it seems I've lost camera connectivity from the rear camera on the device. On closer inspection, I notice an inconsistency in the connector on the mainboard to which the camera ribbon cable should connect.

    Is there some way to fix this short of buying a new phone or mainboard? Could the part be fixed with a very small tool, or somehow coaxed back into shape? Could that connector be desoldered and replaced?

    Thanks!

    it would be helpful to see a picture, but I suspect you're looking at a new board...

    It seems that way. Is there somewhere I can buy a new board short of buying a whole phone? It doesn't seem like it, except on one Amazon UK shop that sells non-working boards for parts.

    You can't buy a motherboard unfortunately. I did the same thing to my phone when swapping the housing, but I messed up the connection for the screen.

    I found a broken q10 for "cheap" and harvested the motherboard, hopefully you can find a similar deal.
