Post subject:  tangerine clamshell, 3 keys not working, ribbon cable?

hi... after a fwe months gap of no use, I got my tangerine ibook out for use and have found that 3 keys are totally non functioning (Space, Tab & Backspace).. pretty important keys!

I'm sure this is not a case of a worn out keyboard, since they are totally dead, non intermittent and the ibook has had very light use..

I removed the keyboard and found that where the ribbon cable connects to the keyboard it had come slightly unstuck.. i pressed it back, i didn't want to break it anymore but I still have the same problems... All other keys work perfectly...

I guess this must be cable related, probaby at the keyboard end... any similar experiences or easy fixes... I don't really want to shell out on a new keyboard if I can help it!
