Can I repair the back LCD Data Cable?

I recently took the LCD plate off and the bottom right data cable cut through with my pick. My first time with this mistake. I was just wondering if it was possible to re-attach this data cable or repair it?

Is this a good question?

Not really. Those flex cables have dozens of extremely fine pitch traces running along both surfaces. Once the flex is torn, you have to replace the screen. If you only had a tiny nick, it could be (theoretically) possible but even I don’t bother…and I have the tools to do the micro-soldering work :>).

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to salvage the LCD but guess not!
