    Ah, right.

    Yes, go right ahead; make a clean cut and scrape the plastic coating away on the ends. It's how they were made from the roll in the first place. If the remade cable-end didn't do the trick, there must've been more damage done. The connector itself, for instance.

    Cablepluggedin1_zps0871a72e.jpg This is the white plastic wedge that keeps the cable tight against the circuit board. I do not see any damage to this connector. If I just cut a quarter inch off the cable and start fresh, what is the best method to strip away the insulation on the ends to make uniform contact? I would think that just taking a razor and cutting away insulation will not leave a uniform surface to make consistent contact. I thought to take my Dremel with the wire brush attachment and just abate away the insulation on one end to try and make it uniform.

    No dremel necessary, you're making too much of these simple things. A utility knife is fine; their proper contact is ensured when you push or click the moving part of the connector back in place (with some resistance). Seeing that picture, however ... certain the connector's in order? These are the two most common flat-ribbon types:

    I would like to say that I made this sow's ear into a silk purse, but, didn't happen! From the look of tape and connections I would guess that I am not the first guy to take a shot at this! I think that I am going to give it one more try when I return from work in 4 days, but after that, I guess that I will just have to kiss the $5 goodbye! LoL, well at least I got my money's worth in amusement!

    Thanks for all the help!

    Don't know, it just ceased to work at all on the second attempt. :confused:

    It is all piled carefully in the corner right now while I am waiting for my girlfriend to be out of town and then will give it one from try! ;)
