Did you ever figure out how to get it out? I have the same problem. I changed the ribbon with a 3rd party part and the bad solder job broke and the part is still left in the socket. My only option is to use crazy glue and a pin or something small to glue to it and then pull it out…but I don’t have any krazy glue!
The easiest way to get that ribbon back in is to hold it with some reverse tweezers that I fix it sells and use it to grab the ribbon and hold it while you fiddle with getting the ribbon in the slot. It’s super easy this way. You’ll have it installed in 36 seconds. Try it. (Reverse tweezers…press to release ones)
I had an interesting discovery when I got to this step. The 1.6mm Phillips screw indicated in this guide was not a Phillips screw head. Mine was more of a circle. It's like it was stripped already. My magnifying glass is not great so I couldn't see if it was stripped or if a different bit was needed. I ended up leaving it in and just swinging the bracket to the right just as the5dunhams suggested. Thankfully it worked and I was able to continue on my 4.5hr repair (problems arose during the start of the installation process). Everything now works. It's weird using my power button since it's been broken for a couple years. Thanks.
