FLIR Thermal Imaging broken lightning connection
I have a FLIROne Pro for IOS that attaches to the iPhone for thermal image photos. The lightning connection broke off can this be repaired ?
FLIR Systems specializes in the design and production of thermal imaging cameras, components and imaging sensors.
@beemom take a look on here How to fix a dead FLIR ONE and see if yours opens up in a similar manner. If so that would be the way to get to the board and the connector. Problem will be to find a replacement. “Apple Lightning Connectors” are available at places like Alibaba.com and others but due to their size etc. some good soldering skills will be required. We would need to see more of the board and how the connector is attached. You may also consider using a connector from a lightning cable or even create cable connection instead of a direct connection. FLIR does not repair their devices if they are not covered under warranty. They will only replace.
2 - 5 minutes
So now the question is can you find another broken one on eBay which has a good connector assembly and can you swap the part out?
