[ESX 1]Ribbon contacts outworn

First to say: English isnt my mother tongue, but i hope, i can make you understand what my problem is :)
I bought an ESX from Ebay which was not working at all (scammer alert :( ), so i fixed a lot of stuff and since yesterday, the Ribbon controller contacts are outworn.
Since i cant find any ressource in Germany or nearby countries which can provide a new controller, i wanted to fix it myself.
Can anybody give me a tip how to solve the problem the best way? I tried to connect copper cables on top of the old contacts, but this didnt work out, somehow.
Should i just disconnect the white thingy? It has 5 connections, the cable only 3 lines. Whoch connection is for what?
I hope you can help me, since i spent a lot of money and time for the Electribe and already was able to use it. I just wanted to change the last thing, the arp slider and now that happened :roll:

Solved. The solution was pretty easy. Theres something called silver lacquer (google translator :D) and its even less destructable than the copper print on thw flex cable.
