Million to one chance. Anyone got an old Epson R300 printer?

I cleaned the print head on my old faithful R300 printer but the ribbon cable that connects into it is a bit frayed at the end and not long enough to trim and try again. :(
Don't suppose anyone has one of these in the loft they haven't got around to binning/don't use?

We will pay the price but we will not count the cost..

I'm not sure the connectors at each end, but maybe you could just replace the entire ribbon cable?

Are you able to get pictures of the cable and connectors at each end? Maybe we can find an equivalent.

It's not a simple ribbon unfortunately. It splices off into 3 different places etc. It's quite long, full of 45/90 deg folds to get around inside.
