Broken ribbon cable during screen replacement.

I was trying to to replace my ipod touch 4g screen because it was cracked. During the process of lifting the logic board one of the ribbon cable tore. Can someone please identify it and tell me if it can be fixed. Idk if it has anything to do with the screen because the screen also wouldn't turn on. thank you. pic uploaded in link.

If the ribbon cable from the screen to the connector is pinched, you may get a white screen that cannot be fixed because the traces on the ribbon cable have been damaged.

Do you mean that you can't fix it by getting a new ribbon cable? I am getting white screen after water damage (nano 4th); occasionally I will get half stripey screen that I can use, but most of the time it is white.
