I crashed my P3 Advanced into a tree and broke the gimbal. I replaced the broken piece of the gimbal, but now I have no power to the gimbal at all. The motor fires up fine, everything appears to be working but the camera/gimbal. I used a cheaper ribbon cable on the gimbal so I know this could be an issue, but shouldn't the light on the front of the gimbal come on? Where do I begin checking for power to the gimbal / camera?
Thanks!

Have you checked the wires that run into the drone to see if they were damaged in the crash? Pop off the cover and take a look inside to check on that gimbal cable running into the board inside.

I checked both cables that run to the gimbal for continuity and they are good, but I don't know their pinout to look for voltage.
