I'm trying to follow the instructions for this project from tomshardware.com (http://www.tomshardware.com/howto/20041113/index.html) and in the process I've encountered this headache of an obstacle.
What is required is an old overhead projector which i've already had in my posession and a cheap 15" lcd display (found an old viewsonic with burnt out CCFL's for nothing). The pictures below show what the issue is.
When trying to fold back the circuitry on the panel, there is a flex circuit / ribbon holding it together. It pulls out of the connector on the one side no problem but on the other it is soldered down. Somehow I have to find a way to extend this 20pin transparent plastic cable which is barely half an inch wide, and circuit city has no idea what this is. Is this mylar? Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
