Question about broken ribbon clip

I noticed that I broke the ribbon clip on one side (completely off), It appears to be held in place ok, but could that be the problem?

    My son received a ds lite in December, and in May I noticed the black tiny "c" hinge clips broke off. Every time you open the ds lite to play, it just flops open. How can I get a replacement part for this? This is the only problem we have had with the ds lite to date.

I can't get the grey ribbon clip to lock into place

With some ribbon connectors, the ribbon simply slides into the connector until seated, there is no locking action.

We bought a 2010 Merc Mariner, two days later, passenger side window got off track or something, as it wouldn't close though the motor was working. Dealer said two "clips" or something broke that held...

You have to replace the broken window regulator

I doubt the dealer did a thing but took your money

You can't just put the so called clips back on, as they
are part of the regulator & are broken

Stay away from dealers

You never let anyone inside your vehicle doors, to do
window regulators or motor repairs & you never let anyone
fabricate brake tubing,their all butchers,you do thoses jobs

No repair was ever made at the dealer

I am trying to fix a door handle that will not open from outside

Turn the window handle to where you can see a small 1/2" slot rt at its base where it meets the'll notice a small brass v shaped clip,you'll need hooked pick or something simular to hook this clip and pull it out of its slot,this release's window crank handle. Once this is off the rest of panel is held on by plastic panel clips that pull loose by pulling panel outwards from door ,and also by a few various screws. once panel is off temp. slide window crank back on and crank window all the way up. You then should have clear view of outer door handle. Handle has two rods attached to it,one for lock assy., one for latch release.This is the one you'll be looking at.Most likely you will find rod has came loose due to broken retainer clip at handle,or casting on handle itself has broken off.If clip is broke you can buy new clip at dealer or at some autoparts outlets,replace and reattach rod(make sure rod locks into place).If handle casting is broke will need handle replaced.It is held in place by two 10mm bolts,two rods preeviously mentioned. If handle is body color matched will need color code(on door jam sticker)to order handle from dealer to match.Lock assy will need to be transfered to new handle,it is held in by two spring clips.You notice two holes one on each side of lock,you will need to push release clips inwards through each hole to release lock and slide it install just push down into newhandlle until clips engage. Let me know if you run into problems. Good luck and if this was able to help you please leave me some positive feedback. Thanks and good luck, Joel

Nothing works on my Pioneer P7500dvd after getting a new ribbon??

I recently opened my unit up and experienced the same problem. What I found is when I took it apart, I had to remove the gray portion that holds the removanle faceplate. It has two tiny screws, one on each side. When I removed them the piece flips up and comes loose except for the ribbon which clips in place with a tiny plastic clip that WILL BREAK if you remove it. You have to basically break it to get it apart. The ribbon is covered by a small silver plate that has two screws. Since the clip breaks, when you put it back together, you have to slip the ribbon in place and find some way to secure it. What I did, is i placed the ribbon back in place and placed a dab of silicon on the broken piece and placed it back in its original position. I then placed a piece of black electrical tape over it to hold it in place. The ribbon needs to be held down tight to work so I took about two inches of black electrical tape and folded it a few times, placed it on top of the broken ribbon clip and placed the metal cover on top of it. Basically when you put the srews back in placed it squeezes down on the tape, clip, silicon and ribbon holding it in place. I turned it back on and it worked. Hope this helps. Dan(Macgyver)

The sliding door handles of my 1998 Toyota Sienna have both broken.

I replaced both of my sliding door handles this weekend. It was actually pretty easy. Cheapest I could find the handles was a little over $70 each. The interior panel is held on with one screw and 10 nylon clips. The one screw is in the cup holder. Put you hand in the cup holder and push out at the bottom. It pops right off exposing the one screw. I started on the clips from the top at a corner. Seemed to be the easiest place to slide a screw driver under. Once I got the screw driver in, I started working my fingers under the panel. The clips run mostly along the top and bottom about 6 inches from the edge. I made an effort to apply the force as close to the clips as I could to reduce flexing the panel. Once I got the first clip to pop out the other followed pretty easy and the panel lifted right off. Carefully peel back the plastic barrier. The exterior handle is held on with two 10mm bolts. Connecting the short cable was pretty obvious once you could see everything. Now I have to teach everyone to open the side doors very gently! Hope this helps.

Fiji Finepix S5500

solved my own problem, but for the benefit of others.
the camera is held together via about four/five small phillips screws. these need to be removed. the back of the camera will come away from the body. Make sure you don't pull too hard as there is a small connecting ribbon between the camera and the rear circuit board attached to the back. This ribbon is held in place at either end by small brown/tan coloured clips that hinge up to release the ribbon and down to clamp the ribbon to the connections. Try removing the ribbon ends and replacing it. If you are careful you can do this with batteries in place. Make sure you have your card in place, it won't work otherwise. I just realigned the ribbon and the camera works wonderfully. Might help with other errors. also a small ribbon attached to the multi function button, may have the same result for other problems. good Luck.
