I have a 128x64 graphic LCD from sparkfun. I soldered a male pin-header connector to so I could use it for multiple projects via breadboard. It's more than a year old now, and recently one vertical line of pixels stopped working. I noticed that if I applied a little pressure on the frame of the LCD it worked fine. So I took the frame off and attempted to re-seat the elastomeric connector (mistake). Now I get random pixels all over the place. My question, is there some sort of adheasive used on the connector? I ask this because when I lifted the screen off of the connectors it seemed to be lightly glued to the PCB and the glass. Have I made a big mistake trying to re-seat the connector? Should I scrap the display and just buy another one?
Thanks for any advice, DigitalJohnson
