I’d tagged this on the end of the multi~Calculator kit, but I think it needs to be a new post:-
I’ve already told you all BUT “I’m totally useless on the electronics side but good on the Pure Mathematics and Algorithm issues’
I bought a half-completed μWatch Calculator kit. I know it started in 2007 and now I can’t find anyone to help.
I did manage to get the setup instructions coming up on the screen BUT when I folded over the ribbon cable so that the 2 parts could be bolted together to form the watch the red +ve wire from the battery came off from the PCB. I got a friend to re-solder the wire back on, which he did very professionally. However I then couldn’t get the screen to work all. Then the ribbon cable from the PCB to the LCD came away at the LCD connector. It was covered in some black goo which when I cleaned it off the 16 metal connectors were exposed showing on the LCD board. I’m not sure if these are the broken off terminals from ribbon cable, now stuck to the LCD board? (Some pictures attached below).
(1) Does anyone know and can tell me the exact LCD screen I need and would that replacement come with a 16 pin cable already attached to it please?
(2) I bought from Amazon a “MakerHawk 2pcs I2C OLED Display Module 0.91 Inch I2C SSD1306 OLED Display Module Blue I2C OLED Screen Driver DC 3.3V~5V for Arduino” as it looked the right component, but for the life of me I can’t see anywhere where you could attach a ribbon cable?
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Sorry it won’t let me attach the images, exceeds available space.

RE: μWatch
I think there's a couple of folks here with them, but have you tried asking on Dave Jones's forum? They might be more familiar with it.

Yes - he said it was a project from 2007 and couldn’t remember the spec of the screen.
