Need help with T62C baseband

Hi guys, remember me? I've got an Energy Pro (T62C) with non-working Wi-Fi and I'm guessing it's due to a damaged baseband - diagnostics apps keep telling that the baseband is unavailable - and I was wondering if any of you can help me with that, maybe with a file to flash or an indication on how to fix that.

Wi-Fi never turns on and no MAC address is associated with the reader.

I've sorted every other issue I had with the reader and this is the last obstacle to enjoy it freely. I'd deeply appreciate any assistance. I've tried flashing the original versions of the Energy Pro, and a couple of T62C upgrades and none has helped me.q

Doesn't sound like a software issue and more like a hardware one. I have not opened my reader but some have a connection plug to the antenna inside the reader. This could have been disconnected.

I considered that, specially since I noted that a cover plate was loose on the inside of the device. But, upon close inspection, I didn't notice any issue whatsoever with the board, and Google did return some lucky results regarding a corruption of the baseband as a cause for Wi-Fi loss in Android.

I took some pictures when I opened my device and they're here. Could you give me your opinion on the matter? Thank you. Any and help you can provide is more than welcome.

Couldn't find a connector either. The closest thing to a cable connected to a wifi antenna is circled red.
To be on the safe side some questions:
If WIFI is switched on, do you see any networks at all?
If no, since you reflashed it with the original firmware its probably a hardware failure (wifi-board or wifi antenna). Not sure how to solve this, sorry.

Hi, thanks, I don't see any networks and the switch changes automatically to the off position after I while. Thank you for your time and consideration mate :-D

Hi, yes I've tried the latest Boyue firmware (February 2016) and the Gonyx version and nothing. Añrhougnive noticed that those contain only the system.img file
