UMAX Powerlook II Trasparency Adapter Problem

    The transparency adapter on my Powerlook II 'broke'. Seems the thin
    flat 'ribbon' cable containing 8 conductors, and connecting a small
    circuit board on the rear of the adapter to a small circuit board on
    the sliding light-mechanism jammed and actually pulled out of the
    latter, damaging the cable's end slightly. The end is supposed to
    connect into a small 1" rectangular receptor containing what look like
    small wire-ends. The end does not seem to snap in not does it seem
    that the receptor is made to clamp onto the end.

    Has anyone had this problem? Fixed it? Replace the ribbon cable?
    Where did you find a replacement?

    The cable is marked

    I think we are talking about the same thing - what I call a 'receptor
    connector' contains what you call a 'jack'. Seems reasonable.
    I see 8 ' little 'prongs' inside the black receptor connector, but see
    no way to spread their 'teeth' so as to grab onto the ribbon-cable's
    ends which would be great. You say to pull up on the sides of the
    connector, but so far I have been unable to do that. I can pry up on
    a side, but the entire connector want to raise up, which would be a
    no no. I must be missing something here.
