  1. Relocation of keybed from main board not working

    Yes it seems I found out the hard way lol... thanks for the links also... but good news anyway guys its all working now that I have soldered it... seems ribbon can work over longer lengths after all :) Thanks for all your help guys, take care :)

  3. Relocation of keybed from main board not working

    Hi guys, about to do some soldering and just want to check the configuration on a 20 pin IDC. Is it correct that pin 2 is directly underneath pin 1? thanks :)

  5. Relocation of keybed from main board not working

    Oops, I think I finally see the problem, these cables cant be joined this way. Am I right? Up till now Iv'e been thinking as long as the red is on the same side it would work but no I see now that doing that puts pin1 on the bottom row instead of the top. Does this make sense at all? :) I think I should solder, what do you think guys?
  6. Relocation of keybed from main board not working

    Thanks and Hi Peter, yes I am aware of the arrow marking pin1 thanks. Maybe its not possible to join 2 females using a male to male? maybe I need to chop off the ends and solder. What are your thoughts please? Not sure if these photos will help, 2nd photo is the original cables from the keybed

    Here you can see the main controller behind the RM1X thus the need for the long length :)
  8. Relocation of keybed from main board not working

    I had to use male to male connectors so I could join, cause you cant buy male to female

    Thanks for replying, I dont think there is a twist. Can you confirm please
  10. Hi everyone, what a wonderful forum you guys have here and such smart people too. So... I have a CME UF80 and decided to (stupidly) relocate the keybed to under my desk and was hoping to have the main controller part on top of my desk (things I do when I get bored)... So i went ahead and mounted the keybed under my Desk and purchased some ribbon extension cables (130cm) from China. This is where it all went wrong. I did not realise that ribbon cables won't work if they are longer than 45cm :( So now I don't know what to do, Is it even possible to still use my keyboard this way? I haven't been able to find any alternative wire that would work either. Is there a kit available on here that would do the trick?. Sorry for the long post, hope you guys can help me. I can upload pics if you need me too also... I'm sorry If I have posted this in the wrong area too...Thanks so much :)
