Are LCD FPC connectors that fragile?
Long story short: I am an idiot and I tried to open a FPC connector from the front instead of the back. Obviously, this was not good at all and part of the connector is now broken and teared.
This is not beautiful to see.
As a result, when the screen is supposed to turn on, there appears noisy multicolored pixels.
I do not want to give up and I considered buying a motherboard to replace it.
However, do you think the problem is indeed related to this connector?
I mean, certainly the plastic is broken but how is it so important for the screen to work? The pins are still present and therefore the contacts should be made pretty much correctly. Can a slightly damaged pin be the cause of this weird screen?
All opinions are welcome. After many attempts at repair, I do not know which direction to take.
