Reconnecting Ribbon Cables

I had a broken front LCD screen on my Hero 4. I orderded the replacement screen and went through the repair after watching a couple of videos. During the process, I accidentally disconnected the three ribbon cables along the left side of the front LCD screen. It appears that the top cable connects the shutter button, the bottom cable connects the rear LCD screen, not sure about the middle ribbon cable.

 

I successfully reconnected all three, but the shutter button still doesnt work. I took all three cables out and re-seated - no luck. I tested the camera on wifi, and can use the app to start / stop recordings and take stills.

 

Is it possible that I damaged the ribbon cable for the shutter button? Any other ways to fix? What are my options at this point?

 

Thanks in advance.
