In attaching the ribbon cable for the touchscreen the black securing grip part has pinged off. I have located it but am not sure if I am able to re-attatch it to the rest of the connector as it is so tiny. Under a magnifying glass it might have a very tiny securing lug on one side but the other side doesn’t so it may be broken.
Any suggestions ?
I have tried without it but no joy, there is obviously no electrical grip in the cable. I am not sure if another black part or complete connector could have the black part or whole plastic transposed. I am not confident I would be able to re-solder a new part but willing to give it a go (I’m an electronics engineer).
Failing that I suppose the path is a new main board for the remote - are these available ? I would sacrifice the Pi. What cost would that be ?
The remote does work - just no touchscreen
