Having just received my LP I was pleased to read the instructions on connecting the screen which did not exist so I went to the web site and read the docs.

I have to say I did not understand the concept of rotating the connectors to insert the ribbon cable. I tried to gently ease the connectors upwards and have already damaged the touchscreen connector.

I suggest that a clearer example might be necessary to avoid many damaged units.

I have used these connectors on laptops but in my previous experience the connectors would slide to allow insertion. I managed to push in the screen ribbon but have been unable to get the touchscreen connector inserted

Would someone please draw or demonstrate the correct method of rotation to avoid damage?

Many thanks
Ian

Now I get it,

The instructions should read

"gently lift the black element of the socket upwards using a finger nail"

I lifted the white part and have broken it.

:oops:
