Hello everyone, new guy to this forum as of today! I had a question/issue with a TurboExpress I purchased broken that im trying to repair. From what I can't tell what happened is that someone left batteries in the battery holder and that leaked all over the hucard pcb. A lot of rust an corrosion ate the flat ribbon cable beyond me being able to reuse the cable. I had to desolder it and remove it. The board for the hucard itself was pretty bad with corrosion but I was able to clean it up and fix some broken traces with a jumper wire to get continuity back to the pins. Hopefully that card will last. I can't seem to find the right sized flat ribbon cable that connects the hucard pcb to the main pcb. So my question is can I use a ribbon cable from a computer to make the connection? Or can someone point me to the right cable for purchase? Also is there a replacement hucard pcb for sale?
Yes, you can just use wire instead of a flat ribbon cable. An old IDE cable work work well.
Let me take a look for you first though. I might have a parts Express with an extra PCB for the hu card slot that I could part with.
Thank you very much for responding. That would be awesome of you if you have a hucard pcb that you would part with. Let me know what you want for it. Also if I can help you out as well let me know. Thank you very much again.

tron: I hate strictlylimitedgames jash even more so when they get the rights for physical release of anything by taito.

spenoza: It occurs to me that this same limited physical release approach has hit other hobbies as well, like tabletop role playing games. Companies in that space that aren't Hasbro are all small and so they tend to do limited prints of books and then lean on pdfs.
