Hi all - just opened up my JP for the first time and I noticed that the below grounding straps that connect to the dmd assembly are frayed and one is completely broken.

Does this cause game issues?

Should I replace both? Recommendations on places to get them?

You should replace. It is readily available as "flat tinned copper braid".

Thanks luch - I swung by a friends house and they soldered back together (my solder skills are subpar) - worked like a charm.
