Broken Ribbon Clip and Has My Brand New Screen Just Died
So I was replacing my Wii U GamePad's LCD screen (long story) and I was golden, everything was fine until I broke one of the small ribbon clips that holds one of the digitizer ribbons in place. So I was finding a solution online like anyone would do and the screen worked if I held the ribbon in place. So most people were saying hot glue but knowing that once I glue something its not coming back up I first tried to find something to hold it in place while I apply the hot glue but next I tried holding the ribbon in place the screen wouldn't turn on. I'm scared at this point that I'll have to buy a new screen to replace the replacement. Someone please tell me I didn't kill the screen. Also it still works as a touchscreen I just can't seem to get the screen to work.

A solution I saw in a US post was to use a strip of paper over the end of the ribbon and then secure the joint with masking tape. Claimed it would work for a few months.
