    Hi

    After a crash today, a couple of ribbon cables have become detached (one black and one grey).

    Even though the ribbon plug has a couple of empty slots on the end, I'm not sure that this is where they came from. Having looked at photos of new ribbons, there are the same number of cables and seem to be a couple of empty slots in these also, but I cannot see any other plugs etc in the camera base where they could have come from.

    I have attached a few pictures and was wondering if anyone here knows where these should plug in to.


    Cheers

    It's your antenna cables. Just order a pair of new ones. Attaches easy.

    I've marked the connectors that your black and grey wires pulled out of. Those little connectors snap onto the boards opposing connectors.
    Not sure if you can reuse the connectors, and get the wire back in or not.
    There was another thread in the forums I believe, where they were discussing obtaining the connectors.
    I'll post a link if I come across it.

    Thanks for your replies, much appreciated.

    I've taken the connectors off, and it looks like I should be able to reconnect the cables. I'll try tomorrow rather than having to re-thread new cables through the frame.

    Yea, you should be able to just get aPair of tweezers or needle noses and pop em off.Then solder them back together or rig 'em!
