How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi all, I was wondering if someone could please help me. It is the first time i opened an iPhone and have come across a hardware problem. What it is was that my iPhone 3G speaker was not working so i decided to open the 3G. (Before opening the phone worked perfect) but after i had everytging apart (back middle and front screen) i found that i accidently ripped the ribbon cable (completely apart) that was connected from the power button to the motherboard. I cannot think of a fix other than replacing the part, could someone please tell me what i should do and what is the part number and where can i get it from? All the help will be much apreciated Thanks for your time.

If you look on the back of the part it should have a part number. If not just google the part and it might tell you. You could try getting it from ebay.

I don't know, you could try the detailed teardown on I suppose. I've never seen a 3G, let alone disassembled one. xD
