Hey guys - I f'ed up my ribbon cable. First the oven didn't work, then soldering didn't work.. kept soldering until the ribbon cable melted / twisted / really didn't work... I think it might have had a crease in it as the original problem. I lost a metal ribbon wire on the board and thought it was all over.

It took hours of patience and finding the right supplies. But this worked for one eye so far (I didn't start working on the second one yet). I don't have any experience soldering, but just winged it. It was very meticulous work. I'm hoping it still works when I insulate the joints and put the cover back on. I used a cheap radio shak soldering iron.
