Fixing or replacing this particular flat cable.
I have a Samsung Ativ Tab 7 (700T)
This is the cable:
There aren't really two. I took the picture of the same cable from its front and its back.
And here's my story: I've got this device, Samsung Ativ Tab 7, which had a problem about not getting past beyond POST (Power-On Self-Test) and remaining with its screen dark, about 3 months ago. There were still 2 months until its warranty would run out back then, so the official service fixed it for free and also gave us this report where it was noted that the LCD cable was replaced.
Same problem occurred 2 weeks ago, and now they won't do it for free. I don't want to give them 30 bucks for them to replace this cable and then wipe my drive for nothing.
I want to try fixing it, myself. Is it possible? Any suggestions I should follow?
I am up for an alternative fix, too, like a makeshift-cable to substitute the original, if it's feasible. I am up for anything, actually...
Note: My guess is that the cable is damaged from heat, since it is right underneath the battery, although there are 3 more cables there which appear to be intact.
Is this a good question?
