    So I bought a HP Veer 2 weeks ago and yesterday I've got a black screen problem.
    I disassembled Veer and found that flex cable has been divided on two.
    I googled flex cable for HP Veer and searched for it on ebay and aliexpress without luck.

    Do you guys know if it possible to find a new flex cable or I need to get a new phone?

    It's connected to the screen, best is to replace the whole touchscreen. That's what I've done in the past when I had this problem.

    @creepingmee on Twitter (I think he's on here as well) sells good 2nd hand Veers. He might have a spare screen including cable laying around.

    Thanks Herrie!
    I've sent him a message. But I doubt that he will ship to me the phone to Russia.
    I managed to unplug the flex cable from the device, but I broke the port on the motherboard: the clip (the black, moving part of the port), which suppose to hold flex cable, fell apart and doesn't hold flex cable anymore. I am such a moron.

    LOL I broke that part too the first Veer I took apart. It just popped off instead of unhinged. Live and learn.

    Yep, it popped off and when I tried to put it back I broke it completely.
