Hello BC!! I have a problem that has been irritating me for a while!


On my laptop (HP G60) I broke the clip that comes down to hold a small ribbon cable in place. The ribbon is for the power on and turn wifi on. I had some ghetto rig in there but it barely worked. I was hoping someone here would provide me with a more solid fix or at least point me in the right direction.

i was previously using electric tape, but that didn't work too good. or maybe im just not good at using electric tape lol.

short of replacing the whole thing (huge pain in the butt even for an electrical guy like me, not to mention probably a bit expensive) I would take a toothpick or something similar, firmly press it into place then put a dab of hot glue on either end of the connector, this should hold it in place well enough.


Note: This would be very difficult to remove once in place, be very careful with it!


My only other thought would be to use some sort of strap around the connector (glued behind the blue pull tab then glued behind the white connector on the board) then put a piece of foam or something on the case above it to press it into place.
