My TIVO kept getting stuck on the powering up menu so I opened it up and tried cleaning the Pwr Supply Ribbon which connects the front of the TIVO to the motherboard. In doing so, I somehow touched the ribbon to the motherboard and burned it. Too make an already long story short, I need to replace this ribbon and can't seem to find anyone who carries it. Thinking it was junk my wife threw away the ribbon so I don't even have the part number or vendors name.

I've found several places selling ribbons but none looking like this one.

You might try calling Sony but I don't believe the ribbon cable is called out as a stocked item in the service manual. Your best bet might be to unsolder the ribbon cable connectors from both boards and install a pair of wiring harnesses soldered at each end. Attach a pair of 10-pin connectors to the harnesses that would allow you to disconnect the cable for service or removal of the power supply or mainboard without having to desolder the wires to either board.

Excellent. You might want to post the PN in 1Dave1's Power Supply Schematic Project thread in the experts forum to consolidate the info.

Thanks for the info. I've looked everywhere and couldn't find it.
