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

its a pcg-k86p or pcg-9u1m  and it doesn't find either and the ribbon cable has no part number so does it come with the power panel?

The PCG-K47 shares a lot of parts, try this link.
