How to fix ripped off ribbon cable connector?
I was trying to clean my printer from the inside, but after trying to move the printer one of the ribbon cables to the printer snapped, apparently the destroyed part is the ribbon connector as shown in this image:
And this is how it tore apart, as I was moving the printer to get better space.
Now I was checking with a multimeter for continuity to determine which one of them was broken(the cable itself or the connector?) Unfortunately, I cannot say that my tests are accurate as these are about 0.5mm apart. My multimeter tips are big, but when I check the cable from end to end there is a short. I also checked the continuity from the main board connectors to the touch screen connectors.
This is what I get after attempted repair (superglued the broken clip back)
좋은 질문 입니까?
I have bought the parts and they are in transit, just incase I get the same signal from the touchscreen after replacing both the connector and ribbon, what does that signal indicate?
