Ribbon cable connector broken. Need replacement part
Okay so I have this laptop obviously and I’ve used it for a few years and repaired a few parts here and there over the years. Now the current problem I have is that the ribbon connector flap that pushes the ribbon cable down and locks it in place, broke. The actual connector is fine, but the little flap broke. Now the issue is obviously getting a new flap connector somewhere to replace the old one that broke. I have searched just about everywhere I could think of and cannot find what I am looking for. Unfortunately it is much too small for me to solder off and just solder a new stronger plug onto that space, otherwise I would have gladly used that option to fix my problem. The connector that I am referring to is the one that goes to the power button to turn the laptop on. If it was any of the other connectors I could have bypassed it easily with an external keyboard or mouse. But unfortunately it is pretty much the most important one on the motherboard.
I have seen a few repair video’s on the problem, but all the people just use electrical tape, that they stick over the ribbon cable after pushing it into the connector. For me, that is really not a good enough option, as it would just be a fire risk to me and I would definitely not use it then.
So if there is anyone on here that might help point me in the right direction of the part or give me a better fix than just electrical tape, then I would very much appreciate the help on the subject. Thanks in advance.
