Re: Proper Way to Pull Single-Ended Connectors?



Thanks for that tip. I have some of the four-pin type but will be getting some of the other pin-count versions. I didn't realize those would work.

Been there. You can replace the broken connectors with DuPont ones. They
are cheap, widely used, i.e. in Arduino projects and in various pin
counts. They are always black.

Regarding those harmonica connectors, when I pulled one of them from one of the
circuit boards last night (P1306 on the A22 board), it crumbled in my fingers.
Interestingly, it was a blue connector. The other colors were okay. I have
noticed that the blue connectors have crumbled more consistently in some of my
plugins and I'm wondering what a specific color would have to do with this.
Presumably they're all mixed with a dye but odd that blue is affected more
than the other colors. Anyone else noticed this?
