It needs to be soldered back together. I've done the same thing and I'm just debating selling my entire computer.

I had the same problem, only i admid i broke it myself;)

I ordered a LCD internal connector for a 27" on ebay:

Problem is to find a guy or service who can solder it on the logic board.

It should be a piece of cake for a person with some smt soldering skills, unless you can do it your self.
