Anyone know if DJI sell a replacement ribbon cable for the H3-2D Gimbal ?
Yes the main one for the camera, from what I can tell the main one comes out of the back controller, and feeds in to the camera housing and both motors, so it looks like anyway, but either way the one that comes from the back of the unit.Do you mean the two ribbons that controls the gimbals motors or the ribbon for the camera?

No I mean the ribbon cable.
Are you familiar with the Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal designed for the go-pro 3 ?
I am getting the feeling that the people who are replying don't have one otherwise you would know what I am talking about.
The ribbon cable is part of the gimbal its self, its not a video cable, its not an add on cable like the 8 pin cable - this is an integral part of the gimbal. DJI don't list this as a spare part - I am hoping some one has one for sale (stripping down a broken gimbal) for instance - or knows of an aftermarket solution.
So if you don't understand what I mean - or never heard of this please don't reply.
I found a whole gimbal for parts online yesterday but since you feel you shouldn't have to go into this type of detail neither do I. Do your own reseach!!
Btw, the "ribbon cable" should really be called a "black flex cable" to distinguish it from the "grey ribbon cable".
I've not seen that ribbon sold anywhere. (Except once on Ebay from someone who disassembled their gimbal.)
However, it doesn't have that many conductors, and therefore is something that can be fixed by soldering tiny wires to it (for someone with sufficiently advanced soldering skills).
At each socket, there are only 4 necessary connections: ground, power, CAN-H, CAN-L. The other 2 wires are to send the camera video back to the main board.The cable is too small and flimsy to be reliably repaired, my problem is that it is corroded at the socket end, making bridging almost impossible.
