SPLICE A BROKEN FLEXIBOARD / RIBBON CABLE – IMPROVED



Much clearer, step-by-step and very accessible video, with easy to copy hints – good stereo microscope or equivalent still required.

A lot easier to do than video, so long as great care and patience is exercised. Save those redundant and/or torn ribbon cables to practise on.

****UPDATE: 11 Aug 2016****: At 2:50 I state that “You CANNOT BUTT-JOIN two halves with solder……….”; just recently I repaired another split cable and didn’t need any wire “stitching” due ( presumably ) to keeping the soldering iron to a lower temperature where the solder doesn’t flow so easily; so WAS able to BUTT-JOIN !!

*UPDATE 17 Aug 2018:* Very good butt-joining video – *”FIX FLEX CABLE”*
