Which cable did you trim? the 100 wire ribbon that the connector from the outside? the other screen control cable is the 8 wire connector that connects on the same board as where the power connects to.Okay,
I have finally fixed my CIM's screen issue that I first mentioned in this tread:
I replaced the LCD panel, and it didn't make a difference, ghosting issue was still present. I decided to check the resistance of each conductor in the ribbon cable from the CIM's computer motherboard to the the LCD panel, and I found several circuits with very high resistance. I pinpointed the excessive resistance to the area where the large ribbon cable connectors "crimp" on to the ribbon cable (the terminals of the connector pierce through the insulation and make contact with the conductors in the cable). I removed the connectors, cut off about 3/8" of ribbon cable, cleaned the barbs of the connectors' terminals with DeoxIT, and carefully crimped them back on. Retested the resistance afterwards. Looked good, so I reassembled the CIM and tested it. Works perfectly!

I have screen that looks like it spent too much time in the sun. It has for lack of a better word...a bubble right in the middle. Not sure if its the screen....or just the plastic in front of it. Haven't had a chance to take it apart yet. But I would like to get it fixed if it is the screen
