This is the Floppy Drive Ribbon Cable out of an A3000 which someone had cut.
This ribbin cable was snipped through a missing podule blanking plate. 2 cuts were made to it.
In this pic I've already cut the edges even and seperated the strands.
Here Ive made up 3 repair sections. The pic is bad as shadows make it look like there are more wires.
Here I've tinned all wires and joined the inner wire then covered it with insulation tape.
The second join has just been made.
Here ive finnished the repair. It doesnt look pretty but it works. If your after a showroom machine
then get a new section made up but this will get an old machine running again.
