PiBow Zero W doesn't fit raspberyy pi zero w


#1

I already made a support ticket about this ,
but I was just wondering on whether I was actually in the wrong.
I ordered a pi zero w and pibow zero w, and the pi zero w doesn’t fit the pibow zero w!
The ribbon cable connector makes the pi zero w too long!.
My pi zero w is listed as v 1.1 so I don’t think buying the v1.3 case would help.

Was I mistaken in buying the pibow zero w?

Thanks.

Might be possible that your ribbon connector is open. Gently push it closed and try again.

@gadgetoid
That was it thanks!

You didn’t maybe, mix up the layers? Have to ask. It’s been done in the past, and easy to do. I have the older Pibow Zero case and didn’t have to do anything around the camera connector. I had to cut some bits off at the other end to get it to fit a Zero W though.

Haha thanks for all your help but as it turns out gadgetzoid was correct and the black bit on the cable wasn’t properly pushed in.
