Is new cable needed then? Thanks for your reply.It has happened to me many times. In each case the console is fine at first but then I reassemble it or add PSNee or Xstation and lose audio or video. Without power through the audio cable you won't even get video.
It's very delicate. Resoldering does not usually help because the break happens inside the cable layers at the edge of the pad. I've bypassed it on multiple Playstations.
I am having a similar issue, but get periodic buzzing or static with my sound. The video looks great. I have tried to find bridges in the sound chip, but don’t see any.
I even took the chip off so I could check under the pins for any extra solder. No change.
Will this extra board work with this issue?
Do what CZroe posted. It worked like a charm. No issues with the sound now. I just removed the audio ribbon cable and installed the small board and used a new ribbon.I also got no audio. My audio flex doesn't pass a continuity test. Can we get a spare somehow?
Anyone have links to the parts above. Possibly an installation video?
Do you happen to have any pics of your installation? Where did you secure the board? Just ordered the parts and going to give this a try later this week.uxcell FFC FPC 10 Pin 0.5mm 1mm Pitch to DIP 2.0mm PCB Converter Board Couple Extend Adapter https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RS4SCSG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_8E4SPSCPCC7FZ8NSD4G1

So I see that you have 2 different spots here with the number '2'. Can you get 5 volt from either of these spots? Do the green, blue, red and yellow locations also get soldered to the cable adapter or are they supposed to be jumpers from the audio chip to the locations you have marked on the board?
