Hi guys after waiting for a replacement screen for a DNA 75 C board, I messed up and the ribbon clamp was broke and  now no way to clamp ribbon in place.

I was hoping to purchase one from somewhere and solder it to board myself..  Does anyone know what part model is and where to purchase.. any help very welcome..  

Also Merry Christmas

* Here is pic of the part I mean

Are you sure it's broke I pulled out an extra board I have and it looks the same that part pulls up to let the ribbon in or out . My brand new board looks just like that when putting the ribbon in make sure it's in all the way or that part that lifts up won't stay clipped  but that part is supposed to lift if you look at the ribbon it has a notch on each side that is how it's locked in place once you push that little hinged piece back down .If you want I have an extra 75 c board I could probably sell you but I don't know how we would work that out. If you look at the part you could desolder it and solder the ribbon directly to the board just use low temp solder paste and it should work fine or solder the ribbon directly to the pins I would try that first.

Yeah that pic is of a working board, mine had the plastic clip missing in middle - so there is nothing to clamp ribbon down..

Like I said I just put a brand new board in my mod today just because I had an extra one if we can figure out how to work it out I can send you the one I took out still works it just about two years old so I replaced it let me know what you think I'll send you a picture of it

DNAPIC.thumb.jpg.d0cb991b1e43216356e0b1ef9594afe2.jpgThat would be amazing, im in uk wales..  if you can do that and shipping not to much, I'd be happy to pay for it..  my postcode is NP203LL

I was even thinking maybe I could put ribbon in place and then hot glue a small piece of plastic over it to hold it there, it's a bit awkward, but it's either that, or buy new board ?  But many thanks for the offer, thats really nice of you..

Well like I had said in the other post if you were willing to get a new ribbon cable connector and solder it in yourself. Then skip the connector and solder the little contacts that are left of the knackered clip directly to the ribbon cable. It's very easy to do get some low melting point soldering paste and spread some on the ribbon and place it were you want it and heat it with the hot stick. I'm not sure how much time you have had working with a soldering iron but the one thing to be aware of when using soldering paste don't use it like the bigger the gob the better the job mo paste don't mean mo better . Use only a little and it will all flow to the meatal to metal joints and won't leave any solder between joints to short on out your hard work. I don't know about you but when I dump a bunch of effort into something and something like solder crossing over pads and shorting out ruins as ll no that effort. As if by magic that project takes flight across my shop  hits the wall and breaks itself down into smaller pieces . If you try doing something like this the worst that could happen is the broke connector stays broke and you are out a couple dollars sorry I meant quid for a screen . I have to been working on electronics for most of my life and that is what I would do if I were in your situation . But the whole board is still there if that's path you want to take and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it I thought it was was acting up so I swapped it with a new one and the same things were happening . Ask it turns out it was the cheap coils I bought trying to save a few cents . It hasn't started the magic flight yet though .

Yeah I got a KSGER solder station and ordered some low melting solder.. And as you say cant get worse ;)  I done a bit of soldering over the years, but never any ribbons..  But as you say low melt solder and less not more and I should get it done ..

Plus I seen a link earlier , that someone else had same prob - he placed ribbon and hot glued a piece plastic over top.. So gives me a couple options..    Like I said before, nice one for offer  - and I'll post a pic here what ever way it goes !!   Good or bad   - lol

Happy New Year !!

Happy new year to you as well . When you solder that so you don't burn the ribbon take a small piece of foil and place it on top of what you are soldering that should help with keeping the ribbon in Good shape and let me know if you end up needing this thing it isn't going anywhere so it will be here if you do
