    I have a GS15 plus that I’m trying to fix and when I cut the test file I’m getting bad results, seems to be affected by the connectors that go from the motors to the board, if I wiggle the connectors I sometimes get better results. How can I get a more consistent connection? Replace the connectors? If so where would I find some?

    Well you can remove the pins from the connector and check if there is something wrong. Then you can take out the PCB and re-solder the connector/pins.

    That connector hardly fails. Check soldering quality especially for the bigger parts or parts around heat sink. While you pressing the connector you possible bending the motherboard too. Once I had to replace the white ribbon cable for this machine.
