So, I posted on here recently that I was having issues with my GPS and finally got the nerve to open my Phantom up and take a look. I have been receiving a Code 45 error each time I power on my Phantom and it would prevent it from taking off. The picture below is what I found. Anyone know how much DJI might charge to get this fixed? Anyone else sent their bird in to DJI to have it fixed? What is the typical turn around time and cost to ship? Any help is greatly appreciated.

First thing to try is disabling the VPS in the DJI GO App and see if that makes a difference.  I've heard that error code can be associated with that.

I suspect DJI's solution would be to replace the entire $399 main board.  It looks like the pins of the connector are ok but the locking tabs have broken off.  If it were me, before I took that route I would try a dab of silicone adhesive on each side of the connector to hold them together.
