I've been asked to help repair a keyboard. On examining the keyboard I found the issues (circled) in the below image:
- A tear in the middle of the ribbon cable
- A tear across the end of the short side of the cable where it entered the PCB connector
My only other idea is to remove the insulation over the smaller tear and solder on small wires to bridge the tear. Then to remove the insulation on one side at the end and attempt to reinsert it into the PCB connector. Given the size of this cable I doubt my ability to solder the cables to rejoin them.
Does anyone else have any suggestions for an alternate method of repair?
