Eye Malfunction

The eyes on my PM8 are malfunctioning (blinking green). I cleaned the detents and eyes and it looks all good. It's a new eye pipe as well.

From what I can see, the eye ribbon has a bad connection to the board. If I angle it correctly they work great so I know the eyes themselves are good. My question is... do you think the eye ribbon is the problem or the connection dock on the board? Either way I put a small shim between the ribbon and grips to hold it in place so the eyes will work. It's a stock PM8 board. Thanks
