DSlite Top Screen Ribbon Cable Hack

This morning I have the unfortunate task of replacing the top screen on a DSlite. This must be at the top of the list for most annoying job.

After struggling for what seemed like a few hours, to feed the ribbon cable through the hinge housing on the bottom screen, I had an idea.

A small amount of kaptop tape, to extend the ribbon cable, allowed me to feed the cable through and pull it with my tweezers, without damaging the connections.

It’s a small tip, but the amount of time I could have saved, I thought it deserved a new blog post.

Here’s a photo to illustrate what I’m writing about.

I hope this little tip helps someone as much as it helped me.
