6:10 Cut don't rip! Not that I do electronics, but I'd be using a pair of mini side-cutters.

Makes me laugh how there are people who think that board repair is as cheap as a happy meal at CrapDonalds, and then want a discount on top.

Benjamin Slayton says:

What happened to that iPad?!?

seccat says:

You have your cute receptions in more of the video. You might some more subscribers

Victor Hugo Cajero Navarro says:

Your vid is Good but you cuss to much

Robbob9933 says:

Have you ever considered using soldering vises?  I worked in assembly and had to attach tiny wires like you are doing here and the vise made life happy.

300 for a s7 or Notre 7 is doable

Simon says:

why not just flow the new connector on from the underside of the board (as there are no components)? I'm only asking because Ive done it this way and I've worked fine. I may have gotten lucky. Is there more risk associated with my method or is it just a personal preference?

oh man, what is this piece of shit lol +++++

HecTech FPV says:

Would you say a 5X lens on a magnifying glass is enough to do this job ? , my boss is sending me a connector this week to do this repair but expects me to do it without a scope :/ i did a 5s digitizer FPC last week without one but not looking forward to this one

عادل المسلاتى says:

Hello, I currently have the problem on my iPad mini. I think I have a couple pulled pads on the fpc digitizer connector just like the one in the video. My question is, can I send it out to you to be fixed and how much will it be to get the pads repaired and have the connector put back on?

I could feel your frustration with that sigh, though I don't think frustration fully describes it.

Cesar Orozco says:

You should go design for Apple. Seems like you can do a better job at designing connectors.

Took you 20 minutes, $40 is OK.
