    I'd be asking what the damage is to the cable?

    If it's just it's one broken 'line' then it could easily be repaired with care. Should you have no luck from the manufacturer there's always an possibility to buy a 'scrapper' for the ribbon cable.

    Another possibility but not for the 'feint hearted' is to use very thin insulated wires as a replacement..... these can be got from the T'con board in scrap 'flat screen TVs', this is the board that connects the motherboard to a small panel mounted on the back of the screen. (Timing Control) - this wire is ideal for winding small signal toroids and broadband matching transformers i.e mixers fore one example.... another source could be monitor VGA and SCART leads, these may be slightly thicker.

    Thank's for reply.
    There are two lines of the ribbon broken. So i suppose that i have to try your solution and look for a technician to reapair it. I just receive a reply from Yaesu France and they told me that the spare, i ask for, isn't available.
