    Hi All,

    I have an old touchscreen till at work and the power supply has gone so I have ordered a new one but the motherboard connector is different.

    I have uploaded pictures of the old connector and the new connector below.

    My question is can I pull out the respective coloured cables from the new connector and place them into the old connector and use that on the till's motherboard?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Marcus.

    I don't know what your connectors look like. If they are Molex, you can purchase an extraction tool from a electronics outlet. Extractors do a nice clean job without destroying pins, wires and insulation. You might also consider purchasing insertion tool. Most connector styles have tools available depending on the manufacturer.

    Two adverts for fileape are the only images I see.
    I think you copy and pasted the wrong code.
    You can google for pics of different style connectors.
