The motherboard side goes into the FPC connector pins downward. When installed, the LED side needs to be on the other side to be solderable. It does look weird at first blush, but it is correct.


Ahhhh, that makes sense, I get it now and sounds pretty logical. Thanks!

Looks good, only thing that catches my eye is that the motherboard connector and the part that needs to be soldered on the board are inside-out. Or am I overlooking something.

If they are $10 for a set, I will buy at least 10 sets. Are you on the PVB Discord server? Way more activity there, I am a 100% sure that if you post there, you could get enough interest for at least 30 sets or more.

Wouldn't surprise me if you get enough interest for a 100 sets though.

Looks good to me, if you can supply them at a very reasonable price, it will be a very nice addition to repairing displays!! Still won't be too easy to install, align and all that, but skilled people should have no issue doing that.

If you know how to design flex cables/PCBs and have them printed, then yes, you are smelling interest from me. :D If not, then I may start learning it myself. I have at least one LED board with no cable, that can be used for testing.

Ideally, they would also have a tab attached like the stock cables, to allow easy insertion/removal from the VB (and they also seem to help thicken the cable at that end for a good firm seating)


I've designed PCBs before - not flex cables - but I can't imagine that it would be impossible for me to make the transition.

I can't imagine the cables would be expensive, though. I'll get to some designing and whack up a prototype, but I'd like to be able to order 100 (50 sets) at least, for cost reasons. I have no data to back it up, but I can't imagine it would cost more than $20-$25 for a set.


I think $20-$25 is pretty expensive, I would have thought they would be dirt cheap, just the start up would be an issue. If you can get the costs to limit to $12 a set I would order 10 sets straight away.

If there will be reliable replacement cables available for not more than €10 each, I will be all over this!
I think €10 is pretty expensive, just to set a max price, because even with replacement cables, it doesn't guarantee a fixed display if there are one or more dead LEDs on the board itself. Hope something like this will come to fruition!
