This zif connector retains the ribbon cable on the joy-con rail and to the joy-con motherboard, which allows the joy-con to communicate with the Switch console when attached to the console.
The flip lock can commonly become broken, which prevents the ribbon from making a connection to the mainboard, and ultimately results in no connection between the joy-cons mainboard and the joy-con rail.
Typically the fragile plastic locks are almost impossible to replace, so removing the zif connector and soldering a new one in place will normally be the only option.
By repairing the connection between the joy-con mainboard and joy-con rail it should resolve communication issues when attaching the joy-con onto the Nintendo Switch console.
Please note: There can be multiple possible causes of a fault with a joy-con and we cannot guarantee that replacing this part will fix the controller, please consult an experienced technician if you're unsure.
Installing the part requires detailed soldering skills.
Requires console disassembly, a tri-wing and philips #00 screwdriver are needed to install this part (not included).
