connecting the 2 wire cable from monitor to motherboard

Step 15 of removing the the monitor does not show a close up of the 2 wire cable from the screen to the motherboard. I didn't take a photo myself either. I am not sure where to reconnect them. Please show me.

Thank you

FWIW the service manual is located HERE

I presume The 2 wire cable you speak of are the antenna wires - I cant locate specific detail on where each one goes. Each wire should have their own connector on it similar to the white and black wires shown in THIS GUIDE steps 3,4,5. Locate the connectors on the main board and see if each wire reaches both or only 1 connector - My guess is one wire will be longer than the other and they will only fit neatly one way round.

Just a thought - looking at the ZD8000 guide, the antenna wires go straight to the WiFi card. Did you disconnect these wires from the logic board or from the WiFi card?


THIS video and instructions may assist if the cable goes straight to the WiFi card.


The wires are the antennae and for the zd 7000 the connectors on right on the motherboard. I have been able to determine that black goes to the main but none of the 3 connectors are labeled w/ main or aux. If I knew one of the connector - I would guess on the second by the lie of the cable. I have a pic, but I don't know how to post it. All the manuals for the motherboard connection do not show the details. The videos for the mini-card are very detailed. So what I am looking for is were do the antennae wires connect to the zd7000 motherboard.
