$100 LY-706 MID Android tablet teardown

Disconnecting the right-side button pcb ribbon cable

Next, I'll disconnect the other end of the thin ribbon cable the connects the right-side button PCB to the motherboard.

We've already removed the right-side button PCB, but this ribbon cable is also attached to the underside of the battery pack. Disconnecting this end may make it eaiser to remove the main PCB later.
