I have a Canon PowerShot A85 which has been playing up for a while, I dismantled the unit today and found one of the Flexible Printed wide lead is cracked from the edge. (please see pic- this pic is only a sample of the real cut)

Could anyone please tell me if it is possible to make repairs to flexible printed leads?????.....The cut itself is quite small, it is about 1 cm long but looking closely there are about 7 fine lines damaged.

Is there a special type of glue that will join these fine lines????

Or perhaps someone has a sparePowerShot A85 Canon and wishes to sell it?

I imagine thats quite difficult to repair, you could probably replace that cable though if your really dedicated to this. I'd check ebay for a broken camera, I've seen them go for just a few bucks.
