Series II/Fiberoptic Cable

I had been getting a 51 error on my Series II, and since tweaking hasn't helped Moe gave me a very fair price on a new scanner assembly. This will probably show up this week, but out of curiosity I tugged a little on the fiberoptic cable and sure enough: it printed with no error. I take it that this is pretty good evidence that the problem is a kink or something in the FO cable and not the scanner assembly? (Don't worry, Moe, I won't return it--although if you haven't shipped it yet...) If the error occurs again, is there something more specific I should do to diagnose a problem with the cable?

Thanks, and sorry for posting so many times,
