Thick black stripe on iMac screen after attempting HDD to SSD swap

Texte:

I swapped my 27" iMac Late 2013's HDD to Samsung EVO 850 1TB SSD. Original aim is successful and the iMac is blazing fast now.
 
But while trying to close the iMac screen, all adhesives lined up, I connected the display's power cable and ribbon cable. Mistakenly, I lifted the display while trying to align bottom and ouch....the ribbon cable (vsync cable??) pulled out from its connector argh.....
 
I connected it back and closed the iMac. When I powered up there was a green vertical line (which was gone after a min) and the gray/black thick stripe about 1.5inch wide. This stripe stays all the time from boot to shutdown.
 
Tried SMC reset, PRAM reset... no luck.
 
I doubt the ribbon cable damage (is it vsync cable)...now I'm skeptical to reopen to play around without knowing what could be the issue.
 
Many questions on my mind....did I damage the display? Is the ribbon cable replaceable (I tried googling for spare part couldn't find a proper lead)?
 
Any help would be much appreciated thanks.
