Is the gimbal still holding the camera?? If not does the camera move when you first turn the Phantom?

Can you move it by hand? I suspect grit or the ribbon cable hanging up or cut. Does the gimbal make noise when you toggle the wheel?

I suspect a bad ribbon cable but I'm new to this so wait for a pro to chime in.
Have you checked the connection(s) I have a feeling the connection is bad or one of the pins in the connection may have gotten bent when connecting.
