Default Phone has to be punched to get wifi unstuck

happens once a week now . Im sure something has jiggled loose . Anyone have any experience in fixing it ? Something a guy with moderat amateur electronic skills could fix? if its a ribbon then no . But maybe a loose connector to the motherboard?

Anyone ever repair this problem ?

Still happening . The status bar under wifi button becomes darker . not off not on . Punch the device a few times and it usually fixes the problem .


Any ideas ?

is the connector accessible ? Or is it buried in crap ? Ive never attempted to take a device apart before.
