    Just did this two nights go. Truthfully wasn't hard at all. Pop off that clamp rip off the old one. Align the new one where the clamp was slowly peel the stuff off while you use a qtip. Once at the power button just remove the last backing and place firmly. Took about 10 minutes.

    Just watched your video. I bought a replacement for 10 bucks off fleabay. A lot easier.

    I like the video but replacement ribbon cables can be had for under $10. Additionally, you can start a Slim without the faceplate using a pen.

    Yeah, definitely would have been a lot easier, but to me, that would be admitting defeat lol.

    Money versus time spent doing it? Yep, better off buying a new part, though I could definitely do it a lot faster, now that I have learned how to deal with that black stuff.

    Re: HOWTO: Slim Faceplate Repair

    Good job. And to the people that say it's only 10$ for a replacement ribbon, there are places in the world where the ribbon costs a lot more like in my country (Venezuela) here it costs 45$
    So it's worth the time to fix it.
