Before playing with the ribbon cable, check the blue plug behind the unit, thats where your RGB wires are. Look for 3 pairs of thicker sheilded wires and check their pins.
If the unit is messed up for good, let me know, I'm looking for a non working screen (just the part that flips down, not the rear tape unit).

I've never seen anywhere that sells replacement ribbon cables. You may be able to repair the cable, but it's probably not going to last very long. You make be able to find a broken monitor and use the parts, otherwise it's probably new monitor time.
