EkriirkE Posted June 9, 2018 Share Posted June 9, 2018 Picked up a Portfolio lot, and one of them just showed a "black" screen and no beep on initial resetSo, following the rumours of the FFC cable breaking I began disassembly to get to the ribbon:Nothing apparent yet, let's get that tape off next...Aha! a hairline crack on the left, 6 traces broken. Rather than try and get the screen open to remove/replace the cable for now (the clear window hides some screws and I don't want to damage it) I decide to scrape some of the polyimide off to expose the copper of the ribbon wiresAnd solder little jumpers across the gapsPartial reassembly to test...Yes, it works!And it beeps and clicks as well. This is only temporary, but it makes me happy for now 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
