broken connector for the camera and FaceTime

The silver connection for the camera cable has broken off at the board. Is this fixable on a MacBook pro A-1398? If so where can I buy the connector. Its a flimsy connector that takes very little to displace from the board.

Ever since this happened my fans continue to run at high speed. I have attempted on several occasions the recommended resets by apple but this hasn't solved any of the issues.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I am assuming that you have a 15" Retina MacBook Pro model between late 2013 and mid 2015 - you wrote A1398 in the question but chose a different model to file the question under.

You can replace the connector, however, this will require soldering equipment and some experience with microsoldering. You can buy the replacement connector here:
