    Need replacement connector for Lilliput

    I have damaged the connector on the back of the LCD. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement. I just need the beige colored piece that pivots up and down to hold the ribbon cable in place.

    Thanks!

    The toothpick solution

    What do you think of this solution?

    I found that just gluing the broken piece didn't exert enough downward pressure on the cable. I tried 4 different glues: Loctite SuperGlue Gel being the best because it was thick and didn't run down into the connector and it sets within 30 seconds (because I couldn't find a good way to safely clamp it while the other glues set in 20-60 minutes).

    However, in the end, a wooden toothpick worked perfectly and I didn't use any glue at all. The duck tape doesn't do anything, I just didn't want to remove it after finding something that works.

    Hi

    I've just fouind myself in a similar position so I'll give your method a try.

    I also need a replacement ribbon cable - it's the same one that's shown in your pic, the one that goes from the back of the panel to a circuit board.

    Any ideas where I could get hold of one?

    Thanks

    This solution isn't perfect. Anyone know where I can get a replacement connector (see pictures in first post).

    When I put any pressure on the right side of the plastic case, the screen goes blank or appears scrambled.

    Replacement cables are available for $3 from www.digitalww.com

    I have the same problem, but I can find source here(Taiwan). I'm planning to replace the beige cover with new one only. Otherwise, it's also not so difficult to replace whole connector.

    Anyway, I just order this parts today. Once it's done, I'll see what I can have help to you guys.

    Thanks dominiclu! Let us know how it works.

    I am going to try ordering a couple of different connectors from www.digikey.com and see if any of them fit.

    Digi-Key Part: HFR40CT-ND appears to be very similar. I've got it here and I will try in the Lilliput when I mount the screen in the car.

    I've also orderd HFJ40CT-ND (close, may work) and WM5684CT-ND (definitely won't work).

    Seems a lot of people have this problem. Any tips on avoiding breaking it? I'll be ordering a lilliput soon, and don't want to destroy it when I take it apart...
