Lose Monitor Cable Quick Fix.

Introduction: Lose Monitor Cable Quick Fix.

About: DIYer and enthusiast of everything. I have been tinkering with a variety of things since my childhood, from simple electronics to workshop and audiovisual.

There was a cable at my work the kept falling or getting bad contact with a little touch, as I work With CAD it turns to be a pain! so I came with this quick fix to prevent it from falling. It's really dirt cheap as you will use just one thing.

So let's start!

Step 1: Materials

To do this you will need
1. The lose cable
2. Teflon Tape

Really dirt cheap as you see!

Step 2: Fixing

Warp some Teflon type around the cable plug, mine took about 10 turns, after that plug it again and see if it's fitting tight, if not try warping a bit more tape and test again until you got a tight fit.

Step 3: Done!

After a good fit, turn on you monitor to find out that it's not getting bad contacts anymore! if the issue continue even with a tight fit you might have blocked the contacts or your cable is broken inside and you will need to buy a new one :sad:

This can be used on a wide variety of lose connections around.
