How to connect ribbon cable from the touchpad to motherboard?

\015 I have a Philips Freevents X62 - similar to Twinhead. I had to take it to bits, and the ribbon cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard has come adrift. There's a black plastic clip to hold it in place, but I cannot get it to lock in. I can't see how to get tools in between the TP & MB. Any help anyone? ThanksRob.\015

Answers :

Hi Rob.
The little black plastic clip either pulls up or forward depending on the connection.
If the tab pulls up, slot the ribbon cable in as far as it will go and push the tab down to lock the cable in place.
If the tab pulls forward, again pop the cable in and push it back to lock it into place.
Ge gentle with the cable and the tab as they can be broken easily.


Good luck
