    Hi all,
    I don't know if anyone can help but I need a replacement AWM 20624 14 pin ribbon cable for the LCD screen on the DM-24 mixer.

    I have looked all over but cannot find one that is 1.8 cm wide and of decent length (need to be at least 35cm) to replace the existing one I have which is broken.

    Does anyone know where one can be sourced. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    John

    Have you tried to contact the folks at fullcompass.com? They have come through for me on a few occasions with hard to find TASCAM parts. Worth a call.

    Best of luck. That's a pretty exotic part but if they don't have it they might be able to give you a lead.

    You can always make your own. They are very simple crimped connectors. I usually use a vise.

    Once you actually do one, you will laugh at how easy it really is.
