Any ps4 experts that can help?

TLDR: If anyone can help /tell me what the job of the 3 ribbon cables going from daughterboard to disc drive that would be very much appreciated

Hi guys and girls, I purchased a faulty ps4 a while ago that wouldn't turn on (turned out to be the power supply, not sure what previous owner has done but basically it was visible that they had tried to take it apart but couldn't get it back together) so I managed to get it back to how it was and yippee got myself a working ps4 for £30.

However while it was dismantled I noticed that the middle of the 3 ribbon cables (the one from daughter board that connects to the laser) was damaged. I'm guessing they took the disc drive apart to get a disc out as the rollers in the disc drive we're not even joined.

Sure enough the console won't recognise games, can anyone help? Would that ribbon cable being damaged  cause the console to throw up the unrecognized disc? Or is that purely to power the laser?

If anyone can help /tell me what the job of the 3 ribbon cables going from daughterboard to disc drive that would be very much appreciated
