Snapped a ribbon/motherboard connector trying to repair?
Hi all. I recently opened up my Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6" to attempt to repair an issue I had with the screen flickering on and off.
I followed the instructions on a YouTube video, but I accidentally tried to detach the wrong cable/ribbon. This caused it to snap the ribbon connector to the motherboard and lose screen functionality completely. Upon closer inspection, i appear to have snapped some of the tiny pins that were on the board itself =/
I'm now left with a dead tablet which I only purchased brand new about 6 weeks ago. I can't send it back under warranty for obvious reasons and I don't really want to spend another £50-70 on getting it repaired.
So my question is, can this be repaired at a relatively cheap cost? And if so, is it something I can do myself? I would add pictures to show the damage caused but I haven't quite figured out how to attach them just yet...
Any help would be greatly appreciated
I figured out how to attach the images. As you can see, the blue ribbon has snapped in half and some pins have come away from the motherboard. Is it totally dead now? =(
Is this a good question?
