The most secure would be to solder. I think that is the recommended route for this repair.

I can't advise on shipping. Have you tried Mouser or Digikey?

You need to buy a good quality one.



Thanks for your reply.
I’m asking about type of cable and connectors before to think in which brand and quality.
I wrote about ebay and Aliexpress just because they are first coming in google search.
Maybe my request was not right.
I could check in electronic providers here.
Before to buy something I need to know 2 things.
The cable is a simple Ide cable with 26 pins (13x2)?
It has one ide female connector in the processor side and the other one is called Idc transition. Right??
My doubts are about the Idc. Checking in different store I didn’t find one that looks similar.
Must to be, I suppose, with male 26 pins to solder them on the I/O board. I only found idc open  upside and with female socket downside.
For this reason I wrote today in this thread.
I need help to find best reference to the parts required.
I live in Canary Islands. Here is not so simple to buy parts and also is not too simple to buy them on internet. A lot of sellers prefer to ship not to Canary Islands.
So, again thanks for your reply, but if you can I need to know something more. Maybe if possible to have some links.
Thanks again man.

You need to buy a good quality one.
The engineering that goes into a reliable IDC connector is quite advanced and needs tight tolerances and years of experience making them out of the correct materials and to the right specification. These fail because they're cheap.

A branded genuine one is the way to go from a reputable japanese or western company.

Hello. I know is an old thread but just today I had the same issue.
Could someone give me some links to buy parts?
I need a 26 pin ide cable and have to peal one side?
Where I could buy 26 pin transition connector?
I found some of them on eBay and aliexpress but I’m not sure if they are  the connector needed.
Thanks in advance

The correct way is to unsolder the transition connector from the back pcb. Buy a new quality branded one, eg Fujitsu, 3M, Amp, crimp it on new ribbon, solder it back in. If you want to solder the cable to the idc forks of the old connector, that's great but sounds like a fiddle to me! If you arent confident to unsolder the old one, maybe this is a safer DIY solution.

Did you solder to the pins on the transition header, or underneath the board, Marjan? Now were did I put that magnifying glass......?

Could anyone supply some (idiot-proof) instructions on how to 1. replace the transition connector or 2. re-use the transition connector, and connect a new ribbon cable?

But with care they CAN be reused (have done it heaps of times with Behringer gear), and is preferable to the real possibility of damaging the fragile Behringer circuit board.....
