I own an HP pavilion ze1230 laptop (about 3.5 years old). Recently my
synaptics touchpad stopped working and I trapped it to a pesky little
cable with worn-out conductors.
It's a flat 12-conductor ribbon cable, AWM 2896 (80C), about 3 inches
long. They're made by Sumitomo:
They're impossible to find online, the only place I found that sold
them was out of stock. If anybody has a busted laptop with this cable,
or happens to have a spare, I'd like to buy it off you! Or any tips on
where to buy it would be good too. Thanks a lot,
Re: WTB: synaptics touchpad ribbon cable
release the cable from it's seating. I removed the old connectors
from the cable and pealed the sheathing back to create a new end. If
that doesn't work for you, I found these two items on eBay:
I hope that helps.
