I had my first crash with my new mavic mini which was absolutely deverstating.
The camera still works and records and also moves around upon turning the mini on but doesn’t move around in flight. The camera also makes a buzzing noise, shakes and also is tilted to the side while in operation. Upon opening it up it appears that one of the thin cables has become disconnected on the PTZ cable. The gimbal will not calibrate either just stays on 10%

I can calibrate the compass and other things fine

Does anyone know if this would need a PTZ cable replacement or a new flex ribbon cable?

Change them both. Parts are inexpensive. ThecPTZ cable is very very light weight and easily damage in a crash. Common to see the connector on the camera torn off or individual wires frayed like a horse's tale.
