This seems to be a good way to trash the tablet. I couldn't reinsert the large ribbon back into the connector on the left hand side. Ended up breaking the connector. According to another website, there is no need to remove the cable from that end. instead there is a proper lock on the other end which when lifted makes the cable easy to remove and replace from that end! Got to go and buy a new tablet now.

See https://electro-medical.blogspot.co.uk/2... for an alternative way of doing it.

Does the tablet work with no battery included, when I just plug in the USB cable? Thanks.
