Argh…FFC Issues

November 7, 2008

Well…I was just getting ready to take apart my Sony SDM-S81 18″ LCD monitor and I was just making one last internet search for potential problems. I found problems all right…apparently one circuit board is connected with no ribbon cable at all – just the connectors directly attached.

I can’t solder that small (read: can’t solder for my life) , and anyways its probably not worth it for an old half-working monitor. I plan to take it apart anyways, to get a feel for ripping apart expensive electronic devices 🙂 Looking for a new monitor…preferably less that $150. Used is fine…just need to find something. Pics of no-good LCD soon…hopefully.
