My GPD win is developing PTOD like pandora. The LCD flickers and distorts color when I move the hinge.

I can find only GPD win 2 cables on internet. Is it the same for the original GPD win? Does anyone known of a manual or video explaining how to change it?

Thanks.

I didn't know this was a common problem on GPD win also.

All flex cables eventually break.
But yeah, the Win 2 seems to have issues here as well, as I'm selling quite a few of them.

Not directly related to the LCD cable replacement but more general:

one end of the cable is removed in the pic above the comment "You also need to lift up the display cable to remove the motherboard."
the other end is visible on the last picture

the motherbord-sided end of the cable being disconnected at 3:11

Thanks. I checked a couple of videos where they explain how to replace the LCD and how to disassemble the whole thing. I will share here if I found something relevant during the operation.
