Question about Computers & Internet
Hello, I have a Samsung R519 laptop. There is a flat flex cable that connects the DVD drive to the motherboard. It terminates in a Zif connector about 1 centimetre across. It has a brown locking bar and two white plastic tabs at each side. It does not open just by flipping the bar up with a fingernail so I assume the plastic tabs have a role. I've had a good look around but cannot find any help on this. I would appreciate any help you can offer. I don't know if I can post a photo but here's a link https://plus.google.com/photos/116639725367221317059/albums/5933073504689263905/5933073510720871138?banner=pwa&pid=5933073510720871138&oid=116639725367221317059
The link to the picture don't work. There are two types of compression connections for ribbon cables. One you lift up on and the other you pull towards the cable

SOURCE: Broken Touchpad ZIF Connector
Best bet is to obtain a faulty motherboard and use the clip from that - they are often sold very cheaply declared as faulty on ebay.
Please rate my assistance I hope it is helpful.

Can you lift the plastic bar at either side on the board where the cable was pulled from?.If so,just lift both sides,one at a time till the plastic bar is loose,then seat your cable straight down until it will go no further and then push both sides of the bar back down to secure the cable...hope that fixes your problem:)

The connectors are usually different sizes and will only plug in one way. So they are not that difficult. They are usually marked also and color coded.

might be a loose lead or bad connection if your hinges are loose tighten them up also
test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) Ide/Sata make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust
hope this helps you:
