JST Connectors

Most of the cable connectors on the logic board use a JST design that requires special vertical insertion and extraction. Refer to the brief movie in the sidebar for a visual demonstration. Note: To view the movie, make sure the manual is opened in Acrobat.


Caution:To prevent damage to the connectors, remove and install them from a completely level position.

To disconnect them, use a black stick and your finger to help support the cables and keep the connectors level.

• To connect the cables and avoid damage to the sensitive contacts in the JST connectors, make sure the mated parts are completely aligned, level, and flush to each other before applying pressure. Then use your finger or a black stick to press them straight down into place.
