    Dogman's PIFed Squonker update, Anyone got a Dicodes 60BF screen? :(

    So, owing to great kindness on Dogman's part I received the Floris box and Dicodes board.
    after carfully removing the board we had this:

    after deciding to do with a larger gauge wire and shorter runs, and after a few hours of messing around I got this:

    And after checking all was well (i'll get to that bit) //////////i got this:

    So when I checked all was well, all was not well, there is no screen display

    After taking macro photos of the ribbon it seems there could be a break in the traces, there are some strange dents in the cable and one very tight bend.

    I'm pretty sure I was as gentle as I could with the ribbon, but as Dogman noted in his build note with the Floris box the ribbon has to double up in a very tight space, so it may have been weakened during removal and re-instillation....I was gutted, here the reason for my dislike of these kind of boards revisited.Anyway, I was pretty sure I had the wiring right and sure enough it fires an atty, so if only to keep all the bits together I assembled it.
    It works . but god knows whats going on with watts Temp Control etc.
    So before I can assess this thing I will have to fit a new screen.
    Any advice on sourcing said screen would be great.
    So the story ends here for now I'm afraid, until I source a screen. I have Facebook messaged Victory Cape, but not sure if they will get back to me or not, I have emailed Dicodes in Germany, we shall see.

    Bugger. Probably my fault, although did work.

    As you said. Very tight space.

    Bernie , Most OLED displays are a plug in industry generic type ... what is the number code on the ribbon strip ?
    a quick google might find it ?
    ( My google FOO is good for these kinda things )

    As a backup count the display connector lines in the strip and the connector dimensions or any relevant markings ?

    No numbers on the back
    Does this help?

    If only that was it, I rekon that would not be the starting mode when you remove and replace batteries though.
