LCD Flex Ribbon Cable Cut

I have tried to replace a broken LCD Panel and while installing I have cut a small plastic flex ribbon cable going from inside the LCD Panel to a circuit board on the middle of the tv. Now the panel is working, but there are some colored lines showing on the right side of the TV and it seems like the right side is responding slower. Is there a way of fixing the flex ribbon or is there a shop where I can buy a new one ? Again the flex is glued somehow on the LCD Panel and on another circuit board. Thanks

SOURCE: where to buy flex ribbon cable

To start with you will need the complete model number for example
LN52A630A3FXZA 14 DIGITS AND A VERISON NUMBER WHICH HAS 4 DIGITS.Or better yet the part number could be looked up with the correct serial number which always has 15 digits on a samsung tv. And by the way the part is called a LVDS CABLE THANKS JOHN

Hmmm. You have picked a hard one. If you mean the flex cable that is ultrasonically welded to the glass LCD screen, you will be out of luck.
Best to call Samsung service centers to see if you can round up a broken screen.

The ribbon cable to the lcd layer (green pixel contact common) is going bad or the connection of the cable to the lcd unit is dirty. It is probably the connection, as the ribbon cable, if installed correctly, will flex many more times than the hinges would be able to (that is, the ribbon cable should outlast the laptop). Sometimes they might not be installed correctly in that there is a hangup or kink of some kind and the bending (each time the laptop is opened and closed) makes it bend beyond the elastic limit of the metal, and it eventually cracks. The problem you have may be cause by the cracked metal in the ribbon cable, and careful placement of the screen makes the cracked trace reconnect by flexing. It could be caused by a bad contact of the cable to the board or (most likely) the screen unit.
If you are inclined, take apart and carefully inspect the ribbon cable for any parts that have a kink in it or is otherwise flexed too much in one small little area. Flex the cable to see if it changes the display. Otherwise, wiggle the ends (careful) to see if it will try to work.
If you find a cracked cable, have it replaced. If the contacts prove to be dirty, unplug or otherwise remove cable end that is dirty and reseat cable after carefully burnishing contacts and using contact grease (smathering only).

The flex cable is the weak link in all Flip style phons, so yes replace the ribbon/flex cable and most likely it will cure the problem.

Help please.,

There is no sure way to know if the problem is the cable without taking apart the phone, and testing or replaceiong parts.
How ever, if your screen goes blank when you touch the cable, then the problem is either the ribbon cable, or the screen itself that has a broken connector, or in rare cases the connetor on the small board.

Check first if the cable is not just misplaced in the connector, and eventually adjust it.

Replace the cable, that cost a couple of dollars. If you still get the problem replace the LCD display.
