Hello guys! I'm new into posting any threads but here's my first.
I've got a problem with my Mini, when I turn it on, it works normally, the gimbal starts moving/checking all axels but it gets stuck to the right/left.
I had a small crash, where I did get sand in the gimbal. After a deep clean I finally removed all of the sand blocking the gimbal, but then I realized that one of the small wires that make the PTZ cable was broken.
People in groups of Facebook told me that my problem was the 3 in 1 flexible (flat ribbon) cable. That was before I checked the drone properly, the flat ribbon cable seems fine to me.
I still have video signal, but when I turn it on, the top of the gimbal gets pretty hot in a minute! The message that appears on my screen is "GIMBAL STUCK".
My question is... Could it be possible that the PTZ cable makes the gimbal get stuck and overheat? Should I order both (PTZ and 3 in 1 flex cable) and replace them? Or by replacing the broken PTZ cable will make the gimbal work normally again?

Thanks in advance buds,

Happy flying!!
