Damaged ribbon cable - Sanyo DP42848 LCD TV

Posted by on

  • C. David Graves Apr 23, 2013

    On LCD TVs, there are flat cables running from the screen control boards to the glass panel. Often these cables are attached to the control boards with some type of glue. If one of the cables becomes partially unglued and the connection is separated, is there some way to reattach the cable and make proper electrical contact with all the of connectors? I have been reading about Anisotropic Conductive Film (ACF), but it seems to be impossible to purchase.

Hey friend, thank you for your inquiry!

From my understanding you were replacing the water dispenser on your Frigidaire refrigerator and the ribbon cable disconnected. I would suggest a generic search online for any additional information regarding the ribbon cable. I was unable to locate that information for you. Additionally, if you continue to have problems I would consult with a professional technician for proper attachment of the cable. Best of luck! -Matt

I own a Korg Triton Classic. I just replaced the touch screen on it. Now it wont read the floppy disks...any suggestions

It is VERY easy to not have gotten the cables back and seated completely for the floppy disk. ALSO it is very easy to damage the ribbon cables on floppy drives by pulling at the edges of the ribbon to pull connectors off. One MUST distrbute the force all across the cable as it is easy o damage the connections in the connector for the wires near the edge. It is also easy to damage the pins on floppy drive connectors. You will need to reopen the unit and check the cables INCLUDING the little power cable to the drive. If you have damaged the ribbon cable you can either replace it or possibly get another connector and put it on the cable right next to the one with the problem and crimp it in a vise... These are an insulation displacement type so you need to get it on straight and ALSO verify the index is the right direction before crimping. For your problem think cables, cables, cables...

You shouldn't unplug the ribbon cable and power on the unit, ever!

Make sure the ribbon cable is 100% in the motherboard, and the front ribbon cable as well, also ensure they aren't damaged. If you can't even get the startup screen, or any type of video output, then your motherboard is most likely shot and I'd see what tivo can do for you.

Definite ribbon problem!!! Need help.

Hi It's sad when a simple problem, causes a piece of equipment to be thrown away, while all the expensive parts are still ok. If you are mechanical, and can carefully take the unit apart,(make sure it is unplugged), the ribbon cable may be a plug-in type, and you can remove it from it's connector on the monitor end, and in the main unit, and if you bring it to your local electronics repair shop, they may give you one if they have one the same size (same # of conductors), or sell you one for a few dollars. Otherwise, if you have a fine tipped soldering iron, and experience soldering, you can bypass some or all of the damaged connectors in the ribbon cable with small wires. Cut them to length, and solder them to the respective pins on the ribbon cable connectors. Hopefully, you can see which lines on the ribbon cable have been damaged, and will only have to hard-wire bypass a couple. Otherwise, it would be more economical to replace it. Hope this helps! Good Luck!
