I don't really know a lot about electroncis, and therefore since I need an answer to something I figured I would start here...I hope there's some experts here! Basically I have taken apart something called an AutoXray(no need to know what it is). The AutoXray has an LCD screen/display. The display is connected to the main part of the electronics which houses all of the IC's and chips etc. It is connected using some type of light-green plastic that looks like it has 8 or 9 thin, flat metal lines running through it. I'm guessing that these metal lines are basically acting the exact same as wires would, except they use these instead because it saves a ton of room. So basically I have two questions. One, do these green, plastic things with metal lines running through them actually have a name. And two, since I want to extend the length of the LCD screen from the "brain", can I just use regular wires to do so? THANKS! I wish I had a picture but I don't...I tried searching online but couldn't find any...so I hope what I said makes sense!
