You can install the cable in ether direction if you look at the past posts you can see that I used a connector on mine but i tried soldering a screen to the cable like iandvaypes and it is easiesr. Here's a pic of the connector which is the same on the board you can see it makes contact if you put the cable in ether direction

Appreciate the reply.  So if I understand this correctly, it is easier to solder the display on, less time consuming (as I don't have to waste my time trying to divine where to get this connector its part number or if I even have the right one) and cheaper (because I don't have to buy it in the first place).  Seems like it is just unnecessary unless you want the ability to swap displays easily.  Hoping I wouldn't have to do that too often

Any advice on methods of or techniques for successfully tinning the traces & soldering it together?  Did you buy your cables without stiffeners & insulation at the ends or did you strip them manually?  Where did you pick up your cables?  Links?

The links are in the pasted posts. As far as a technique I've had very little solder on and swiped it a crossed quick slowly building it up and lots of flux. You will need to buy extra cable and screens unless you get lucky on the first try

Yup they are. I have cut the ribbon and soldered the screen on and shaved the plastic off the top to connect it to the board it was pretty loose I have some kapton ordered, I think that will help thicken it up some.

positioning the screen into the final spot killed it huh? completely or can you get it to at least flicker if you wiggle, tap, etc your solder joint between the screen ribbon and extension? zif socket connection wonky?

Run a dull knife between the strips should help with any solder bridging that you can't see. From left to right #5 and #6 strip looks like it could be touching

So now i tryed soldering the ribbon wire ten times to the screen. I got it working two times. As i wrote above once i put the screen in place and it didn't work any more. Then today i got one working again wile i had it in the right position, i was trilled and tought i nailed it but after a few minutes the screen started flickering then it froze and stopped working again. I'm getting frustraded and i've been thinking to kick the dna200 in the bin. It's the last thing i have to clear. The soldering doesn't seem to be the problem but the zif connection on the board somehow.
