Pinebook Pro broken eDP connector
#1
Hi all.

Last night, after disconnecting my PBP from an external display, I noticed that the display had started to look like this.  There's nothing open in this screenshot.[Image: -zil.jpg]

After a reboot it looked slightly better, more like this:

However, after reconnecting and disconnecting the external display it looked exactly like the first picture again.

Nothing changed after several reboots.

When I opened the laptop to try to reseat the display connector, I had some trouble getting it disconnected - to the point where I accidentally broke part of the socket:

Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement one (or more) of the piece I broke, or even if I can fix this issue at all without buying a new display / opening the display assembly?

Thanks in advance,

You should be able to buy the same connector separately and use only its "flap" portion to replace the one you broke.

Which connector would this be? Should I just look it up? Tongue

Should be the correct type.

I really didn't know the exact part number, but you've already got the required information.  You may also consult the PineBook Pro schematic, which has some annotations for all of the connectors.
