Hi guys can anyone help me with this problem. So I replaced my ribbon cable and when i look into the view finder the colours aren't really fixed. But before i installed the new ribbon cable it was all black and you couldn't see anything except the exposure setings etc.So what could be the problem the view finder itself or is it something else? 28275765_10208548544709670_759485779_o.thumb.jpg.9253a720fe22b4d42dcc367d3847e233.jpghow it looks when you point it outside28340370_10208548544909675_1496058932_o.thumb.jpg.307877b45ee0e04c080c80f0b171ddd3.jpgand here is how it looks inside

You have fractures in the video circuit. It's very common. If you smack the right side of the cam it will likely snap back in...for a short while anyway. boards need to be pulled, fractures found, and resoldering done. I see it daily in here.

Hey man tried smacking it nothing really happend. Should i try and reconnect them manually? And if so can you picture which cables are to reconnect?

It's not ribbons. It's solder fractures in the circuit. tapping can help make and break connections. A "field fix" when you just need a few more hours out of it. Once it progresses, the only fix is a work bench, hi magnification, and a very small soldering iron.

smack that thing hard!!

Well, there's always that approach! If you don't get the desired result....hit it harder. 

The video runs through pretty much every board in the cam except a few. Thee CC/MG boards are often near the top of the list,
