Need help finding replacement flat flex connector
« on: July 20, 2016, 01:37:01 pm »
Hey everyone,

Long story short, while disassembling my Sony A5100 mirrorless camera I broke the flat flex connector for the LCD screen. (I thought it had a flip-up bail, when it turns out it's just friction fit -- d'oh!) It should be possible to replace the connector, but the trouble is I need some help finding one. I've been digging through Mouser and Digi-Key, but nothing looks quite right. It has 51 pins, and the contacts on the flex cable are staggered. I suspect the pitch is .2mm, but I'm not 100% sure, and it's bottom-contact. I'll try to get some more photos tonight (with an eevblog ruler for scale) of both the broken connector and the flex cable, but here are pictures of the connector, before and after the carnage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Before:

Here are additional photos of what I'm dealing with:

The damaged connector. The legs that solder to the board run down both sides of the connector:

The bottom side of the flat flex cable, there's nothing on the other side:
