    Just met same problem as digitallexus. ***** ! I would cut hands/arms of those who designed this connector and who placed it on the board. It is not attached to it, it is just sitting in the connectors pins, and of course after many attaching, detaching of the cable the very first one pin got broken. Looks like it is responsible for the calibrating device also. Spend two days to find why touchscreen is not working. Removed existing connection in the program and could not establish it again. Thanks to digitallexus i could find why. Have no idea how to solder it. It is so tiny and so close to the others. digitallexus, how did you do that? I dont want to buy soldering iron just to fix this piece of crap. How can I prevent from happening this again? Connector on the PCB is always moving when I'm trying to unplug the cable. I'm so angry.rrrrrrr

    I have nice Weller soldering iron with super fine tip.

    You could probably find a cheap radio shack special and buy a fine tip.

    If you don't want to buy one, then you'll need to find someone in your area with a soldering iron.

    Here is a picture. You can see where I added a nice blob of solder just to be sure it was attached!

    Here is a picture of the entire pcb. See what a crappy job zenarc did itegrating the touch controller. Apparently newer revisions are better?

    Thanks for pics, was going to ask for them. My case is worse. It is the same pin as you showed, but it got broken on the elbow. On my LCD PCB with the connector has nothing on it. Unfortunately dont have camera right now. I will post pictures in couple weeks. But I'm going to fix this by that time. Thanks anyway.

    As it turned out at closer look through magnifying glass, I had exactly same problem as digitalww, but not as I described. So It was very easy to fix/solder that last contact.

    No, that would be the work of Xenarc. Nice huh?
