Same kind of thing happened to me, the serial signals are up at one end
of the connector, close inspection of the gold flashed end of the cable
that goes in the GTA02 showed it had a hairline crack at the end.  After
some time struggling on clamping the connector with a bulldog clip it
finally completely tore.  This is why I don't like the flat cable solution.
