This is the connector in question. This is on the main logic board and the LCD flex plugs into it. The black piece that clamps down on the flex is gone and there is a missing pin.

Mike check the update. Looks to be a internal 35 pin logic board LCD connector.

I don’t think the above connector from Aliexpress is correct. Looking into it it seems to use the same connector that is on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 2014. It is actually a 70 pin connector not 35 because there are pins on both sides. You might be able to buy a replacement off eBay or Aliexpress.

Below is the link to the connector on Aliexpress.
