How to Solder replacement headphone jack?

Hi I have an iPod touch 2nd gen in which the audio is coming out of one side only. I found an oem replacement part on ebay for only $4 but replacing this would require soldering. So anyone know how to do this. I looked at the part and there is a ribbon cable on top of the five or so contacts that need to be soldered making it hard to approach.


so can anyone post a guide on how to do it Ive soldered on the spring that is attached to the logic board for the home button so soldering itself is not a problem. Just not sure what exactly to solder for the audio jack.

since the headphone jack is a mechanical part - ic could normally be fixed without replacing - but if you don't have any clue of those things - let it be!

i don't know what nick is trying to say with his answer - surely it't no real "component level repair" - the part is way to large for that category. but if you don't know how to use a soldering iron - find someone who is able to do that.

i think the mentioned microsolder is a "special product" - there are many smd soldering tip's - but changing the headphone jack doesn't require those tiny "needle" tip's - a regular small soldering tip is good enough.

but i would first check the headphone jack for dirt or something like that - it's not normal that those parts are getting mechanically damaged (mostly they die when you try to remove the logicboard - but with normal usage - you can't tear it of the logic board)

Hi All,

If the plug is broken that is tough to replace. The circuit boards are sensitive to heat from most soldering irons.

One trick I can recommend to make it less prone to damage in the first place is adding a right angle jack and then plugging your headphones or other device jack into the right angle connector (Radio Shack/The Source P/N: 274-372).

Good luck... RM
