i've got a more or less functional really old laptop where most of the plastics are shot, (and have been replaced twice.)
If you read that article, the guy really glosses over the complexity of extending the lcd control cables to 2 feet.. it's kindof a massive undertaking, as we're really talking about some super thin 40 conductor ribbon cable thats less than an inch wide.
What i'd like to do, is just build an extension cord compatible with those connectors...
So, heres the connector data i've collected. 40 pins, 1/2 inch by 3/16ths inch.
it looks like this:
I'm basically praying that these are a standard connection and someone can help me identify them. At that point, i'd like to make or buy a spark fun style 'breakout board' that would get those connectors up to a size that i could solder my own 40 pin extension cable.
Does anyone have any info on these?
