Will chipping some plastic off of a ribbon connector cause any damage?
I am repairing a tablet for my dad, and I have on two occasions tried to "unlatch" the ribbon connectors, but accidentally broke off a piece of plastic because the side I was pulling up on was the wrong side, opposite the side with the latch that I am supposed to pull up to free the ribbon cable (in the attached picture the latch is the white side of the connector). Sorry for the confusing terminology. The side that I broke the piece of plastic off of has pins underneath the plastic, should I be fine as long as the pins are still there?Google photos
Is this a good question?
