    I am no expert, but if the ribbons are damaged then I would think it needs to go to an expert (Apple or other repair place)..

    It may be a goner that can't be repaired but like I said I am NO expert..

    Best of luck!

    If you have forgotten to re-install a screen glass then visit Youtube and search for the videos which will help you to do so but if there are damages , it is advisable to take it to the nearest Apple store, especially if it is under warranty or else you will have to pay an additional cost for getting it rectified .

    My guess is that once it's open it voids the warranty and he has to pay for it out of his own pocket.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure I voided the warranty.
    I thought I could do it myself after watching numerous videos. But when I pulled the ribbon out for the glass, I pulled part of the ribbon from the mother board with it.
    I will post better pics soon. My guess is I will need to have a new board. But I will have to see.
