Hi guys

anyone know where I can get an internal ribbon for the power panel as I think I damaged it during a dc socket fix as I think I streched it after putting it all back together and the trackpad didn't work so I had to open it and the trackpad wasn't connected but when I was taking it apart again I forgot to disconnect the power panel cable. The laptop was working fine until I streched the cable

Anyone know when I can get a replacement
