FP2 Repair of headphone socket

Warning: This procedure will void your warranty!
You will need some solder skills

Hello guys,
I had some problems with my headphone socket.
I often listen to music when I am working in the garden, so my phone is in my trouser pocket. My headphones have a straight pretty long plug and the stress on the socket during movement is higher than normal.

After a few month it started to randomly mute one side of my headphones. I reproduced the problem by moving the headphone plug in several directions. Could be like a faulty solder joint.

So I decided to open up the headphone module with a torx screwdriver.
Its a bit tricky but it doable. You have to lift up the metal tabs to open the module.

Here are two photos:

It doesn’t seem like a common problem but maybe someone has a similar issue. Its not to complicated!

And after the soldering. I didn’t cleaned the solder flux because I was worried about the distance sensor.


Please be aware that this procedure could void your garantee on this socket.

Yes you’re right.
It will definitely void your warranty of the module at least!
Maybe even the entire phone!
