I have an original Amiga "tank" mouse, the PCBs are good, but the cable is clearly faulty as the Y axis and left mouse click doesn't work when it is tilted to the right.
I need to replace the cable in order to have it working properly.
I know I have to get a 9 pin D-Sub female connector. But I don't know what type of cable I should get as it should be 9 pin but the mouse cable only has 8 wires + the ground that seems soldered to the metal mesh coating the wires inside the cable.
Also, I don't know which pin goes where on the PCBs, I could only find pinouts for the connector, and not for the PCBs.
So, what type of cable should I get as a replacement and how should I solder it to the PCB?
