If you are talking about the see through yellowish-brownish piece of tape, it's nothing major. Usually pieces of tape like that are to help connectors stay down and prevent shorting. Electrical tape should be an ok substitute, though kapton tape would be an exact replacement. If you are talking about the ribbon cable that attaches the camera to the logic board, unfortunately you would be in trouble and you would have to buy a new camera/cable assembly.
