It would be easier to just buy a replacement cable. Dell sells them but a store like cables2go.com will probably beat Dell's price. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my solution. Thanks.

Resoldered the UPS port. Now cannot reattach the ribbon cable. Any suggestions?


Resoldering is OK, but reinforcing the connector with a bonding material to prevent the connector from moving is also required.

As for the LCD ribbon cable, there is a horizontal lock down latch, about an inch long. that locked the ribbon to the board. If that latch is cracked, broken or missing, it is game over for the GPS. Yes, the latches can be replaced but it is very tedious.

If the latch is ok, all you need to do is flip the latch up. Slide the ribbon cable into the mating connector, with the gold contacts face down. Slide the ribbon in as far as it will go and using two fingers spaced at either end of the latch, flip the latch down, locking it into place. It will grab the ribbon and make the connection to the board.

How do i disconnect the ribbon connectors?


many small ribbon coinnectgors use a hinged bar that presses the cable down against conenctor contacts. Flip up the bar carefully with your fingernail. It will pivot upward to release the cable.

But then, some cables are not removable. They are held in place by sticky plastic tape. LDS screens often employ that concept. Best not to try to separate the cable from the glass. Unplug the cable at the circuit board end.

My microwave says "SE" or "5E" and won't work. What does this mean?


The problem lies with the mylar ribbon cable that connects the Keypad to the circuit board. The Mylar ribbon cable folds back onto itself and are touching. Over time the mylar 'breaks down' electrically and the wire traces in the mylar will 'arc' onto the other mylar ribbon cable. The solution is to separate the two mylar ribbon cables using paper and electrical tape. I've done this on several microwaves (not just Samsung) and it has worked every time. Patience and about 20 minutes is all it should take to fix it. I've described below how I did it for the SMH9187ST Microwave Good luck to all.

1. UNPLUG THE MICROWAVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. 1. Remove the top front cover by removing the (2) screws that are along the top edge (phillips).

3. 2. Slide the cover to the left about a half inch (there are tabs holding the cover in place) and remove.

4. 3. Remove (1) screw from the top of the Keypad Housing (phillips). Lift the Keypad Housing upwards about half an inch (there are tabs holding the Keypad Housing in place) and remove. Be careful of the metal grille that is just above the Keypad Housing as this may fall out since it is being held in place by the Housing.

5. 4. Be careful not to pull on the wiring harnesses that are attached to the Housing. Carefully unplug the wiring harness that has the RED connector on it from the circuit board. Carefully unplug the small white connector that has the mylar ribbon cable on it (this cable is see-through and you can see thin, flat wires in it).

6. 5. Remove (4) screws that are holding the circuit board onto the Housing.

7. The Housing should now be free of the circuit board and wiring harnesses. It's safe to let the wiring harness/circuit board hang free, but caution should be used anyway.

8. 6. Remove the thin metal frame from the Housing. There are (4) plastic tabs holding the frame in place. Using a small screw driver pry one side of the frame away from the housing (try to do this to the side that has smaller plastic tabs). When this side of the frame is free of the Housing you have to lift the frame out at an angle to remove. It might put up a fuss, but be patient and be gentle with it since the frame is thin and fragile.

9. 7. With the frame out of the way you will see the mylar ribbon cable that is coming out from underneath the Keypad assembly. You will notice that the mylar ribbon cable folds back onto itself as it re-enters the Keypad assembly. This 'touching of the two ribbon cables' is where the trouble lies. The ribbon cables may be stuck together. Carefully separate these two and then insert a small piece of paper between them (paper can be 1/2 x 1/2 ) and work the paper all the way down into the Keypad assembly as far as it will go.

10. 8. Using electrical tape, apply a small piece between the ribbon cables to hold the paper in place. Next, use more electrical tape and put it between the mylar ribbon cables enough so as to keep the ribbon cables separated.

11. 9. Re-attached the thin metal frame making sure to press it into the Keypad assembly enough so that the (4) tabs click into place.

12. 10. Use electrical tape and apply it to the raw metal edge of the thin metal frame to prevent the mylar ribbon cables from rubbing on the metal edge.

13. 11. That's it. A final word of caution. Be careful when inserting the ribbon cable connector back on to the circuit board. The connector is loose and you need to gently place the ribbon cable into the circuit board connector.

14. 12. Reverse the order of assembly from above.

15. 13. Plug in the microwave and then it should reset and ask you to set the time.

Best of luck to you

Where can i get ribbon connectors for sony stero system part#26AWG THE END OF THE CONNECTED IS BROKEN OFF


I doubt at this point you will ever find a new one but hope is not lost entirely. Since these are not high current cables the possibility exists to solder the one end of a ribbon cable to the board and then attach a dB connector to the cable for interconnection and taking the system apart. This would solve this problem. In fact ribbon cable of different types can be obtained new and this might be a good upgrade to do as most dB connectors are made with Gold flashed pins. The trouble is not many technicians will want to do this for cheap.

Canon MP160 Error E42


Scanner light should come on at power up. Found ribbon cable connecting scanner unit to base had come unplugged from socket on circuit board. The ribbon cable is one of three found near back hinge of scanner and is hidden underneath the other two. It should drape over the edge of circuit board and then plug into small recepticle on inner side of board. I plugged it in and printer works again. Hope this helps.

In the back of the printer is an access panel with one screw to hold it in place.
The outer side edges are held in place with it plastic tabs (which you can not see due to they are inside the printer. So carefully remove this panel without breaking the tabs. Look inside and you will see a ribbon connecting to a circuit board. This is probably loose or disconnected. The end of the ribbon is hard and not flexible. Push the end of this ribbon in the white plastic standoff slot. This ribbon sometimes comes loose when the top scanner cover is partially remove from the printer. I said, partially because if you needed to remove the top scanner completely, then this ribbon would need to be completely disconnected. You can also see, when the access panel is off, other wire connections connected to this circuit panel. Sometimes they also come loose or disconnect when the top scanner is partially remove. Connect them if they are loose or disconnected. I believe to solve your problem is the ribbon disconnected. Best wishes in solving your problem.

Check ribbon cable connecting scanner unit to base, it may have come unplugged from socket on circuit board. POWER OFF the unit before you do any work on it.
The ribbon cable is one of three found near back hinge of scanner and is hidden underneath the other two. It should drape over the edge of circuit board and then plug into small recepticle on inner side of board.
Once reset, you can power the unit back on and it should work..

Remove the base by taking out the five screws. Look for the ribbon cable on the left hand side. On each side of the cable is a little brown nub, pull away from the circuit board to release the tension. Pull the ribbon cable out, this will reset the circuit board. Put the ribbon cable back in and push the nubs towards the circuit board. This will add tension to the connection. Put the base back together using the 5 screws. Plug in your phone and you should be set.

Display is blacked out


I had the same problem with my Pro 96 display not displaying and followed thtough with Standers420's suggestion of taking the scanner apart and checking the ribbon wire from the board to the display. I put a little contact cleaner on my finger and kinda worked it into the leads on both sides of the wire, near each connection. Very carefully I might add. IT WORKED!! And it's really easy to do as well. So now for the first time in over 7 month's I have functionality back with my scanner. Because without the display, you can't actually use it to it's full capabilities. Thanks, Standers420!!
