Today I opened my Hyundai in hopes I could do something for the wifi antenna and headphone jack.
It was incredibly dumb thing to do
Seriously, don't do it.
The wifi antenna was this tiny wire with piece of copper at the end of it. And it was placed pretty decently so I think it just is too tiny for the job. Next I tried to see if there was something wrong with the headphone jack. Well, it looked ok: nothing loose or hanging or shorting and soldering was ok too. So it must be defective or something.
So far so good (considering). Problem was putting the thing back together. The metallic backplate was just pressed in place with a touch of stickytape at the short ends. Of course the sticky stuff didn't stick so well anymore so I got not-so-bright idea of using superglue. That was stupid of me in hindsight. I think the vapors from glue wreck havoc inside the tablet since the buttons (power, volume, home) doesn't respond so well anymore. And I still had to put some electric tape to stop the case from opening at the seams.
All in all, heed my cautionary tale.
