Reviews and questions about the entry-level MPC500

Hello everyone, I hope and you are well, it is the first time that I have in my hands a mpc like the 500 to start hehe, I have a small detail with this machine, I do not know if you can help me.


The flex cable 2896 that connects the mpc card to the CF memory port of the akai was sulfated, so the machine could not read the memory, the slot that connected this cable had also been affected, so I decided to clean with contact cleaner.

I was able to revive the reader but the 2896 flex cable was damaged, with the copper exposed, as I had to sand it down because the sulfation had eaten away much of the material.

will this be a problem in the future?

Does any flexible cable of any model work or does it have to be 2896?

Where can I get this type of cable, since I can't find any on the web?

If someone who knows about the subject or this has happened to him and has the solution, he would be very grateful :worthy: :worthy:
