Should I replace LCD or only ribbon cable (if possible)?
My 2018 razer blade 15 (GTX 1070, 16gb RAM, Intel core i7-8750H, etc., ID: rz09-02386F91) could use some repairs.
The ribbon cable connecting the LCD to the motheboard is damaged at the hinge point (I believe this is a common issue), after a few weeks of the screen sometimes glitching a bit with temporary flickering, it is now only on (and responsive) when I partially lift the laptop screen (i.e., if I hinge the screen out past a certain angle it turns off).
Additionally, the microphone and webcam don't work (that's been the case for over 2 years), their own ribbon cable runs through with the LCD one.
Laptop is past warranty obviously, I haven't contacted razer support, but doubtful that they would help much.
Can I replace the ribbon cable only (connecting LCD, microphone and webcam)?
If so do you know where I can find the part?
Or if I have to replace the LCD entirely, where can I find that/does it automatically come with a new ribbon cable?

Not sure what this is, might be proof of a previous repair:
Thanks for your help
