OK, a little click bait, I’ll admit. Not quite a miracle, more like a common GF problem solved.
I had just finished my Christmas GF projects when I started receiving the dreaded “lid open” problem. Following the email dance with tech support, the decision was of course, the “black cable”. Ha! I had ordered one the week before, apparently with some sort of premonition. For everyone who has had to perform this surgical operation on their GF, you’ll know the joy I speak of when you stick everything down and in place, turn it on and behold the bright LEDs. Sorta like turning on the Christmas tree after stringing the lights.
I would order another, but of course they’re out of stock now. Just a hint to everyone who has yet to experience the black cable problem, the next time they are in stock - order one. You will need it eventually. I’m betting everyone who has had to replace one, already has another in reserve. I’ve had my GF for 3-1/2 years and this is my second experience.
In any event, my GF is back in operation and it’s a Merry Christmas!
