I haven't seen what this ribbon cable looks like but I have had good luck with specialized electronics supply shops being able to find replacements... I had one go bad in a head rest monitor and by taking the original to them, they were able to find the right cable and there were several lengths available. Basically, they need to know the dimensions of the cable, how many traces, and whatnot... and they should be able to help. I'm not sure where your at, but if you look in the ol' phonebook, you might be so lucky as to find such a place... heck, when I had to replace mine, I was in smaller town and was still able to find a supplier... give that a shot. BTW, any chance you can show a picture of the ribbon cable in question? Good luck!
