    I am not sure, why not return it if it happened through shipping or file a claim

    If its broke inside the glass your probably screwed. I tore my ribbon cable, but it was on the connector side. To fix it, I cut it completely in two, then I just scraped off all the plastic covering the flat metal ribbon on both ends of the cut, I then soldered 1 cut end on top of the other cut end and bam it works again.

    Yea it looks that there isn't any room for that. I thought it could be done that way.
