MG5320: FFC (flat ribbon) cable to scanning unit is torn and needs to be replaced

Hey - any help would be much appreciated here. I was closing my scanning unit on my MG5320 and accidentally ripped the cable that is threaded through the hinge (to the scanning unit) and is connected into the mainboard through the connection slot labeled J1100. I am having the most DIFFICULT time trying to ID the cable and where to buy a replacement. The ribbon cable is labeled with the following:

 

Sumitomo-G AWM 2896 80C VW-1 --F--

 

The length of the cable is roughly 20 inches long (~500mm) and is either 20-22 pin (hard to count the pins).

 

If anyone could help me identify the cable (i.e, what to search for) or where I can find a replacement, I'd be very thankful. I have searched high and low (including ebay and Amazon), but finding the exact cable is proving impossible so far.

 

Thanks

Would anyone know where I might be able to purchase this ribbon, please? I have a paperweight at the moment, and I would like to be able to spend a few dollars to fix it, rather than having to buy another printer alltogether.

 

Thanks
