Reconnecting ribbon cables

Hi, I had to replace the lens on my GoPro Silver Hero 4 and while disassembling it 2 of the 3 ribbon cables on the side came out so the camera wouldn't turn on, bought some tweezers to put them back in and after that it is still not working. Any advice or other options to sort it out? Anyone had this same experience? Thanks in advance

Re: Reconnecting ribbon cables

Hello @rpc4

 

We do not have any recommended way to put the ribbon cables back in as GoPro does not do repairs on cameras. There maybe video tutorials that you can check online, in YouTube, but then those are not officially GoPro. I came across this one that you might want to check out, again, not from GoPro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1omOg1yQXak

Hope that helps. 

 

Best regards, 

Marius
