Is there some trick to it or am I completely missing something? please someone help me out!

    Use a high power magnifier and look inside the connection, I had the same problem and a 10X showed me a slightly bent pin which prevented all 12 pins to align properly and actually shorted out when I pushed the connector together. ( 2 pins in the same slot )
