The Apple iPhone 5 Charge Port Flex Cable (includes Headphone Cable with Mic) is composed of three separate parts located at the bottom of your device under the screen. Your headphones plug into a jack that is on this flex cable as well. If when you call someone, you can hear them, but they can’t hear you, then you need to replace the microphone which is also part of this flex cable. This flex cable for the iPhone 5 also contains a chip that allows your device to sync with a data cable. If you are getting error messages when you try to connect to iTunes, then you may need to replace this part.
Apple iPhone 5 Charge Port Flex Cable (Includes Headphone and Mic) Troubleshooting:
- Start with checking all three parts of this flex cable. If you are experiencing issues or non-functioning of only one of these three components, then you may simply have a bad flex cable.
- If your device will not power on after repair, you may have a bad battery in addition to a defective charge port. Remove the battery and see if you can plug straight into a charger to get life. If you do, then you need a new battery.
- If all three parts don’t work, reattempt the repair from scratch. After removing the good part, check and see if your original cable is still functioning as it was prior to the repair. If neither cable will work now, we suggest contacting a member of our support team for further information.
- If none of the troubleshooting works, you may have a defective or broken part. Contact your source for the parts to see what their warranty will cover. If your parts came from Phone Doctors…
