Is there a way to replace only the control board data cable?
When reassembling the ps3 my brother made the stupid mistake of bending the cable connecting the power control board to the motherboard. This caused some of the data cable's wires (toward the motherboard end) to be severed right where it's coming out of the plastic socket.
If I were to buy a Sony PlayStation 3 Models A, B, C, & E Control Board Data Cable, can I simply insert the data cable in the socket or would I have to remove the socket entirely and solder the wires directly to the motherboard?
I only ask because I notice it doesn't go into a latch like the other end does...
