Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
I am an astrophotographer and wanted to take the infrared filter out of my new camera. The modification went well until I got to re-assembly. I made a small tear in the main ribbon cable from the cmos. I am looking for suggestions. Can I buy a new ribbon cable? Do I have to buy a new cmos? Can anyone out there do the microsurgery to repair the 2mm tear in the cable? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
I would suggest soldering a very fine wire jumper cable to bridge the tear. However this is impossible on the ribomn cable itself. You woul have to trace the break to the solderpoint on the back of the sensor. Having said that soldering the jumper at the other end would be the problem as the cable although bare needs to slide into a clip. I did successfully "jumper a ribbon cable on a rebel 300D .. fortunately I was able to locate 2 solder points.
