Can my monitor be fixed?

By supz ·
Recently In doing a repair for someone, I tried jamming my monitor cable into their monitor card slot a little too forcefully and broke 2 ******* pins inside the monitor cable. This damn cable is attached inside the monitor I believe. Can this be fixed if I take it to a place that fixes monitors, or should I just scrap it? its worth around 100 bucks, if that..yet, this sucks.

First, PLEASE watch your language.

Your obviously upset. But, that does not give you the right to not be civil.

Yes, any decent repair shop should be able to replace the monitor cable. I would expect the cost to be the "standard" labor rate plus the cost of a new cable.

Alternately, it is possible to replace just the connector.

Either way, the trick to the task is matching the correct wires to the correct pins.

Unless you have been trained in how to work around high voltages, I advise AGAINST opening the monitor.
Even when off and unplugged, there can be over 20,000 volts on various components.

The cable is likely soldered to the circuit board inside the monitor. To replace it, you need to de-solder and remove the existing wires. Then solder in the new wires.
