    I got a ipod touch from someone, so I am not familiar with everything yet. The ribbon cable on the digitizer has a part broken off, the part that connects to the actual ipod device, so should I buy an entirely new digitizer or is it possible to just buy the ribbon cable and replace that?

    im pretty sure no one sells the cables only so you would have to buy a new digitalizer

    It happened to me as well. It seems to be of paper. If I have that impression, is there something missing? Are fine wires in the paper? Can someone explain, please?

    Perhaps you should include a picture do we can see the exact cable you're talking about. Was this an OEM cable/digitizer or were you replacing it with one of the non OEM parts?

    Please make a new thread explaining your problem instead of bumping a 3-year-old thread, you'll get more help that way.
