[RESOLVED] IDE cable to extend screen SainSmart 3.2" TFT from Shield

hi can anyone recommend anywhere i can get a short ribbon cable that will allow me to extend my 3.2" TFT touch screen away from the shield around 6 inches i have tried 3 IDE single drive ribbon cables all give me the same issues of white screen.

i know the screen is 100% working so much be the cable.

the only way i can seem to extend this is via breadboard cables i am really looking for ribbon cable as this are more silm and flexiable.

thanks in advance

Hi

I boughtt a 40cm IDE extension cable (male / female) on Ebay. It worked, but every once in a while there was some garbage on the screen. After shortening it to 25cm it works flawless.

Point is.............. don't extend anything............ Its not ultimately reliable.

I have now brought 3 x 15 cm IDE extension cabled male to female and I just get a white screen when I plug these in.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong?.
