Recognizing & Disconnecting Cable Connectors

Step Type:

Drag to rearrange

Here's another type of ribbon connector, commonly found on Xbox gaming consoles.

To remove it, use a spudger or clean fingernail to lift the clear blue tab away from the connector.

Next, use the tip of the spudger to push the plastic locking tab away from the socket—it should only move about 2 mm.

Pull the ribbon cable out of the connector in the direction of the cable.
