Logic board for LCD

When I was flipping up the little black plastic peace on the logic board that keeps the LCD ribbon in place the black peace fell off and now my LCD won't work? Before I started working on it the LCD was in working condition, I've tried cleaning the LCD ribbon and that didn't work. I'm not sure what I should do next please help!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I ran into similar problem on an IPad 3 and was able to fix it.

The black retaining clip was broken off.

I found this article but it was for the digitizer, not LCD:

The fix is similar to either case.

I used a thin plastic piece, cut to the size of the ribbon cable and push it in, on top of the ribbon cable to thicken it. Instead of the mylar tape, I re-used the screen protector from an old Nintendo DS and cut it to size. I did not think it would work but it did for me after 4,5 tries. I believe any screen protector would do, if you do not have the mylar tape around.

Good luck.
