    Hello guys,

    I have a Xiaomi Mi Max and it had a badly damaged screen. I opened the phone up and when I was going to remove the battery, I either pulled to hard or from the repeated drops, the battery connector pin thing came off. Ive added image, it's the part in the red box that i pulled off.

    I've contacted Xiaomi but they have said that "they are not selling the Mi Phones and its spare parts in UK/European region and have no service center".

    As such I have ordered the part but any idea if it can be replaced by a standard mobile repair shop or do i need a specialist? Heres a link to the part

    You need someone who can solder. The part has only 4 soldering points at each corner & should be an easy job but doubt most mobile repair guys are good at soldering. TV repair guys are very good at these things but hard to find these days. You've already done the hardest job of taking off the display :laugh:.

    Edit: £2-5 to solder on our local tv guy shop.

    Thanks for the info Starfarer. Do you think the part can be found locally or will I have to wait for delivery from China. I was quoted by a local shop £40 but I needed to supply the part.

    It's better to order from China and only takes 2 wks to get here. So much cheaper & easily available. Finding something like that locally is next to impossible & usually are overpriced. £40 to solder?
