I've Think I've Damaged the Screen Ribbon Cable

Hi guys,

I was trying this repair:

iPhone 4S Power and Sensor Cable Replacement

Unfortunately I didn't read the comments for Step 28 until it was too late.

I guess I've damaged the digitiser and/or the screen ribbon cable.

Is buying a new screen the only way to fix this?:

iPhone 4S LCD Screen and Digitizer

Thanks for any help.
