Video cable replacement: Where can I get a replacement?

History

I cut the video cable by accident when trying to replace the battery. Can I get a replacement cable? Can it be replaced?

I noticed you never got an answer to this. Are you still having this problem?

Just noticed your question on the video cable.I have a similar problem.

On my nano the video cable plug (which is on the end of the cable and part of the print), is damaged by electrolysis.(water damage) One of the pieces of track is missing.I have been able to get hold of some conductive silver paint(ebay).Hoping to be able to paint this on with a toothpick then scratch out the required bits with an engraver made from a sewing needle.(I have a watchmakers pin chuck for this purpose)

In your case,you could try carefully overlapping the cable like splicing a piece of recording tape. Cable is not too short so a small overlap should not be a problem.Use superglue for the overlap and align accurately under a high power magnifier.Not sure but you may have to rub away the layer of varnish from the cable - to expose the bare metal.Paint on a small stripe of silver across all the tracks.When dry, carefully scratch out the spaces between the tracks and lacquer over.This is only a theory but worth looking at.

Great Answer +

I guess you've looked through these guides(?):

iPod Nano 4th Generation Teardown

iPod Nano 4th Generation Logic Board Assembly Replacement

From looking at it I'm not sure if the display data cable can be separated form the logicboard.

I don't see any spare cables, but possibly the logic board can be replaced.

An option could be to look for a used/broken iPod to use for spare parts.

- hope this might bring you a little further.

the cable is actually part of the logic board and not replaceable, you would need a whole new logicboard to rectify the situation.
