My accessory port stopped working. I suspected damage from recently accessing the hdmi port on the mainboard, so I opened her up and found broken pins (at least 1 and 2) on the AP ribbon cable. I want to attempt to repair the broken connections. Any suggestions on tackling this job? The pins are very small and close together. Would it be best to de-solder all the connections, strip the cable (somehow) and start fresh? Is it possible to do this without de-soldering all the ESCs and removing the mainboard?

Either you remove everything and start fresh, or you just detach the first two cables from the ribbon, strip and solder them :)

I had not considered detaching the broken ones only, Thank you!
