    Has the ribbon come away from the interface? If it has I would suggest you pick up another off eBay cheap. It's not worth the effort!

    The cable ribbon is what sends the data to the MFD and tells it what to display, even a slight bend in the cable could effect what your MFD displays (giving you dead pixels etc).

    It's definetly non repairable mate, but not too expensive from ebay or scrappy
