Thanks for the answer! Could you point to some part number of other identifier to help find the connector?
What do you "damaged beyond repair"? did you rip the ribbon?
I'm not 100% sure. The thing that visibly broke at first was just the connector (it didn't hold the cable anymore), so I had to solder the contacts on. I made sure the right spots on the PCB beep through to the appropriate pads on the ribbon (and there are no shorts among them) but the screen shows no picture (while powering on the backlight) - as if the ribbon were only sending through the power, but not the data. There's no visible rip in the ribbon, but there's one reasonably strong bend right next to the connector. It was there originally (the ribbon is packed by sticking it to the back with some kapton tape) but I'm afraid the un-bending it backwards could have damaged one of the thinner lines inside it. In any case I have no idea how to fi it. I didn't bother checking the connectivity all the way to the screen, as the ribbon disappears into the body there and seems pretty fiddly to disassemble, at least at first glance.
