Default Need to replace the screen

My screen is broken on my e270 and I need some help if figuring out if it is feasible to replace the screen or not. I already bought a 16GB Sansa View to replace it, but I hate not having RockBox.

For those familiar with the insides of the players, I've gotten as far as unclipping the screen from the board, so it's only connected by the ribbon cable. Although the ribbon cable seems to be soldered in at both ends from what I can tell (I can't quite tell on the screen end, but on the board it is). On the screen end there appears to be some kind of tape-like object just below the display part of the screen that might be removable but I'm having trouble with it. Am I gonna be lucky enough that the ribbon cable just inserts into the screen and is taped in place, or is this just some fanciful dream of mine?

Long story short, my screen is broke, wanna replace, help.
