Re: [tracker2] Troubling seating cable W1 in T2-135
- I haven't run into any problem myself. The locking tab (at least on
some DR-135s) does bend the connector hood a bit, but it should still
engage securely. The connectors on the latest batch are made by JST - I
think the Molex type fit a little better, and I might have to see about
switching. Still, never had one that didn't work.
Do the pins make contact fully? Can you send a close-up picture of the
connector inserted as far as it'll go?
