Micro OLED Malfunction -- not working after multiple attempts and replacement

Well at least one thing is now determined, somehow the longer of the two QWIIC cables is bad or loose or something. I tried what you suggested and removed the MAX from the equation. Plugged the OLED into the Artemis using the short cable and the example sketch worked perfect after I figured which port it preferred (not the QWIIC one btw). I then connected the MAX back into the equation and nothing. Switch cables and nothing to the OLED from the Artemis using the longer cable. Is there a way to check and see if there is a way to repair this? I gently tugged on each of the wires and they all seem solid and tight. Not sure what the deal is but for sure the one cable isn’t working.
