Hi -

I'm leaning how to do simple PCB fixes and wanted to get this LCD working again on my pool autmation system.

It's a Hayward PCB but I don't know what kind of flexflat connectors they use. They use a lot of Molex components and connectors, but I couldn't find this one when looking. Should I clean this or replace it (novice at best). Is there a way to fix the ribbon with conductive tape or z axis conductive tape?
