Picture of Iphone- broken charger socket repair bodge.
IMGP1657.JPG
I was given an iphone.
It had a broken screen and was very battered.

I replaced the screen ( £6 Ebay) and it worked fine. ( Replacing the screen is easy and fun; instructions are all over the internet. )

The trouble is that thecharging socket does not engage unless it is held in with all my might, or strapped in with two zip ties ( which makes it impossible to use while charging).


This is my ten minute repair using what I had to hand . . . and it works.

The pallet wood is the baseplate.
The iphone lays on this.

Batons are cut and these are the ends that hold the iphone and the charger plug together ( see 3rd photo).

Step 4: The end.

Hooray . . .
It's ugly but it works and the iphone can be used whilst charging.

The end.
