Hi there,
new to this forum so really appreciate any pointers... thanks in advance.
I am trying to replace a PCB on an old (2001) synthesizer.
All is fairly straight-forward except for this one ribbon cable, which seems to be locked.
The only thing I can think of is that it needs a special tool to push all of the metal pins from above at the same time while pulling the ribbon cable off....
Anyone had any experience with this sort of thing?
It certainly does not want to pull straight off and I can't see any obvious locking mechanism besides these pins or tabs.
Thanks a lot for your help.
Best,
Nick
