I assume that longer screen cables would be limited to OEM orders. If so, what are the Zif connector and flat cable specs so a DIY extension could be made?

So it's possible to move away from the flat/flex ribbon to a "pigtail/jumper"?  are there any capacitive issues to take into account with longer runs of traditional jumpers?

I always assumed you couldn't extend this much at all, otherwise a longer ribbon would have been used long ago. it would be awesome to be wrong in that assumption though [smile] .

Can't find the FCI 59453-08211ECHLF zif socket in stock anywhere. I did find what looks like a compatible socket for the cable in a bottom contact with the FCI 59453-08111DCHLF http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=59453-081110EDHLFvirtualkey64910000virtualkey649-59453081110EDHLF . Was planning on putting 2 of these together back to back and using an FPC jumper cable such as the Molex 98266-0083 http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=98266-0083virtualkey98266-0083virtualkey538-98266-0083 to extend the display. I realize I will have to notch the ends of the cables for socket fit. Got some of the sockets and various lengths of cable in my Mouser cart. Could someone be so kind as to verify that the FCI 59453-08111DCHLF is compatible with the display cable?

Yep, that will work fine. 

The notch is important, otherwise if you drop the device the cable can get jolted out, and nobody wants that.

Mundy, if you find a set of parts that work, please post a definitive list so others can follow your path.

I bought the parts listed above the cables are long like 5" they do have shorter ones the parts do fit but haven't powered the device on to see if it's reading it

So you are going to solder two sockets together?  Like to see it when done.

I have various lengths and they do seem to fit although the ends are a little thicker. I haven't had time to cut the notches and solder sockets (which looks like a bear to do without a tiny board). Work is overwhelming right now so working long days 7 days a week.

What a pain in the butt!!! The connectors are way to small for me to solder together with my iron, the solder likes to bridge I was able to solder it this way. It works. my boards will be here tomorrow I'll still post a pic of the screen working on the ribbon. I need to see about a high doller soldering iron
