I had to replace mine too, I was able to use a 16-pin 0.5mm ribbon cable (this would be 8.5mm wide) that was from an old laptop display until i could get a new one. You will need to be careful though, I tried some I ordered online and it didn’t even power on. I think the laptop one worked because it’s a directional cable and specified which end should go to the motherboard and monitor (or in this case the trigger assembly).

Edit: For the ribbon cable I ordered I believe it was A type, but I think B type would be more likely to work.
