Plus its never fun soldering such small wires

BTW, this is the device I am talking about. If you look at the hinge, the cable actually goes from the base of the unit to the lid.

Thats what I figured. Why waste your time, when you just fixed your problem for $25.00.
I just don't get people that think they have to fix everything. IMHO. No disrespect meant to anyone.
