Re: Emate 300 help!

I did a repair thread here:
http://www.applefritter.com/node/5515

The ribbon cable was repaired by splicing with very thin wire, like the individual strand of wire from the braids used in hard drive ribbon cables. Some sort of magnifier is a necessity unless you have Superman vision.

There's a link in that thread to a fantastic disassembly/repair guide that I'm amazed is still in existence.

If you search Applefritter, there's also another rebuild guide by Doug-Doug the Mighty, whose work provided much of the information for my repairs.
