    Default Broken Ribbon
    When opening my 3GS to get at the battery I think I broke the ribbon to the camera. What I want to know is whether I need a new logic board or camera?

    If you broke the ribbon to the camera. Then you need a new camera. The camera ribbon cable connects in a pop off fashion to the connector underneath on the bottom side of the Logic Board. If you damaged the Logic Board connector then this is where the repair will have to be.

    Good luck.
