Help needed: Net.Adapt. cable info needed
Help needed: Net.Adapt. cable info needed –
I really need your help! Months ago while removing the NA from my PS2 I accidently killed my NA... by cutting the ribbon cable which connects the network adapter board with the IDE interface. (I'm using a Seagate HDD and I had to disassable the metal plate... you know what I mean...)
I've searched a lot but I couldn't exactly find what I *think* I need. So more info about this ribbon cable is needed, please!
It's 26mm wide (with the so callad margins on both sides), I *think* it's 40 pins (the IDE is with 40 so I guess the cable is too because the pins are reaaaally small and I can't count them)... Do someone know the "pitch" and the exact number of pins?
Are those cables hard to find? Please guide to a solution
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
Please guys if someone knows how can I fix my network adapter - e.g. where can I find a spare cable or any other idea...
I'm attaching some pics if you can't figure out which cable I'm talking about...
It's with 50 tracks, 26mm wide. The tracks are 0,25-0,30mm wide, with margins from left/right - 0,25-0,30mm and "pitch" 0,5mm.
I've found here a local electonics eshop which sells 26 tracks, 13,5mm wide ribbon cables. I thought I was lucky - I quickly ordered two of them and I was going to remove 1 track per cable and fix them with some tape but... They called to tell me they had only 1 on stock
Happy holidays and thanks in advance for any help provided!
why dont you use OPL with External HDD ?
thats incase if you didnot repair it .
Thanks for the advise, amp! In fact - I'm using it... but the case is a little bit complicated.
I've desided to "move" on to a PS3 and I've found a "client" for my PS2 with all the peripherials I have... but the most valuable of them isn't working because I've killed the cable
And the situation is that the one which wants to buy my PS2 is waiting with the money in hand to give him the console with a working network adapter, and on the other hand - a friend of mine is waiting to sell his PS3 to me... And I'm desparate what exactly to do
