LCD Ribbon Connector broken?

Post by papajsantos » Mon Mar 11, 2019 11:14 pm

Hi, just got my circuit sword lite and was setting it up for the first time, everything worked, but the black push/pull cap on the LCD connector had one of its legs break when I tried plugging in the screen for a second time.

I'm wondering if there's a replacement part for it I could order? Super annoying for this to be the problem I have with the cso :roll:

Just try if this cap still works without the brocken leg.
The same happened to mine and the connector still works fine. Just without one leg on its side.

Try to insert your ribbon cable as usual with the right oriantation and insert the black cap.

OK, so I just had the same-ish thing happen. Except the whole push/pull piece popped off and flung somewhere never to be found. Under the magnifying glass everything looks fine expect for this "now missing" piece. Any thoughts on where to get a replacement?

Get the 54P bottom drawer version: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/10PCS-l ... 99304.html and remove one from there, don't try and unsolder the connection

Thanks man! (Your warning made me laugh... I don't think I'd ever trust my micro-soldering skills that much!)

Silly question, are all of the connectors on this link bottom drawer? There isn’t an option that explicitly says bottome drawer and I don’t want to wait a month and have my heart ripped out. :D
