Please note:

To connect the screen to the driver board you will need to insert the ribbon cable from the screen into the socket on the driver board. Please take care when doing this and do not use any excessive force otherwise you will risk damaging the cable and the socket. 

When in use the ribbon cable should not be subjected to mechanical stress.


Please follow these steps to insert connect the screen to the driver board:

1) Locate the socket for ribbon cable on the driver board.

2) Gently pull the black part of the connector forward slightly. It should only move out by ~ 1mm. Do not force it any further.

3) Insert the ribbon cable into the socket. When inserted there will be ~ 1mm of the gold contact pads exposed from the connector. Do not force the cable in any further. 

4) Once the cable is inserted and correctly aligned push the black part of the connector back to its original position. This should firmly hold the ribbon cable in place.
