    is there hope?

    So now I managed to totally hose myself with my lilliput. Took it apart to solder a new vga and usb cable on it because the 9pin connector was a POS since the day I got it, it wouldnt even pick up the usb signal inless you jammed the connectors together and then put pressure on the connector area.

    anyway, in the process of soldering I managed to bump the side of the soldering iron against the smaller ribbon cable and warped a few of the pins, tried to flatten it out and reseat it a couple dozen times to no avail.

    so someone suggested i check the link on digitalww for installing the in dash housing and change the cable connection to wires. After trying to solder the microscopic connections I got the brillant idea to pop off the white connector clip so i had a better area to work with. Bad Idea, the clip came off alright,along with most of the pins. Needless to say I was ****ed off. in 99% of all cases when its electronic related I can fix it, leave it to me to f up this one thing. I should have just sent it back to mp3car when i got it and the connector was a problem but I sent an e-mail about it and never got a response. so I figured I was just SOL

    my guess is I'm pretty much screwed here or is there any hope of fixing this thing? i did dro an e-mail to the lilliput office in cali but havent heard back from em yet, someone posted the website and said they got thier lilli repaired for like $30 plus shipping

    what sucks is, the reason we have to take em apart and screw em up in the first place is that the manufacturer builds a complete POS.
