    This is a new type of ZIF cable socket to us. How do you release the cable? (We have tried to move the metal clips in every possible direction and they are not going! We've even bent a couple while trying. Time to ask for help!!)

    They slide both up and down the chamfered bits (left and right in the picture). One way the end of the ribbon is gripped. The other it is not. Gently pull on the blue ribbon. I think as it is shown the ribbon should be fairly free and moved to the left it will be gripped.
