# How do I re-attach this FFC cable to this connector?

While trying to detach the cable, I pushed out the black part, which came out from the opposite side of where the cable enters the connector.

The cable was previously tightly clipped in place and came loose after the black part came out.

How do I re-attach the cable, or is the connector permanently broken?

Is there a name for this particular connector? There seems to be a few names, like zif, etc but I'm pretty sure mine isn't zif.

• ZIF means zero insertion force .... a zif connector is any connector that has a clamping mechanism that allows the cable to be "dropped in" without any pushing – jsotola Sep 27 '18 at 1:41
• Are you certain it's broken? It appears you just need to set the cable back in and re set the holding bar unless there's some little bit of plastic broken I'm not seeing. – K H Sep 27 '18 at 5:54
