[time-nuts] LCD display connector

There are (at least) two types of connector. Some displays use both types. First is "Zebra-strip" which is an elastomer sandwich of conducting/insulating material that conducts vertically but not horizontally. These rely on mechanical clamping and are what Gary is referring to. The other is a tape with conductive tracks that is stuck down. I think this is what Jim has. These can sometimes be re-attached by burnishing with a rounded tool. If they have come completely unstuck I've had some sucess by holding it in place with thin adhesive (Kapton) tape and applying pressure with a foam block between the strip and the case. Good luck.

You need to clean the elastomer. I've done this with Caig deoxit, though
I would search their website to see if they have a special product for
Generally the LCD is just pressed against the elastomer, so you may need
to see that the pressure is sufficient.
