    Hi first time posting . I'm replacing a cracked screen on my l750. After following a YouTube video gone well with disassembly. But I'm realy struggling with refitting the ribbon data connector.

    On the vid it looks as though the connection slides over the connection pins. But I just can't seem to get mine to do that. Does the connector just sit in the pins held in by tape? Seems unlikely but pulling my hair out this seems only option at present !

    TIA

    Trevor

    Welcome to the laptop forums site

    Looking at the video at 7.14 mins it looks like it fits inside the socket.

    Look at the cable it should have a very faint line on it where it fitted in,
    the cable end pins should fully fit in side the socket.

    Use a magnifying glass to see.

    Tried without success. On the back of the lcd screen there's a black block voters by a thin metal clamp. When I took the old screen off this was coverd by tape so could not see the connection . Is the metal connector on the ribbon connector supposed to fit in to that block. Or between the block and the metal clamp over it

    Looking further on, on the video there's two parts to the cable
    the part of the cable that has the metal pins attached needs to be fitted
    “into” the black socket between the two sets of block receptor pins.

    The clear plastic on the cable is used to enable you to pull the cable into the
    block connector.

    Once firmly fitted the clear plastic is then stuck down to stop the cable from working loose

    Most new laptops use this kind of cabling,it's a pain.

    Oh well making a real dogs dinner of this. But learning a lot with your patience . Now think I've totally knackered cable and port :-(.

    Looking at the now stripped cable and port it is difficult for me to understand how the cable fitted in to the housing . To naked eye it looked like it should slide into a slot. But without the cover and magnified what looked like a slot now appears to be right angled connectors . Or have I totally lost the plot? I could order a new cable and if pushed even a new screen but don't want to make same ham fisted errors !

    Oh well got to the end of the road methinks. Got the cable firmly in place , powered up and one of the chips (possibly video) under the clear plastic board covering overheated , burnt the plastic covering and all video is dead now. Powers up then powers down

    As I said been a learning experience , thanks for sharing the journey :)
