    I think he meant to say he broke the cable OFF the logic board.

    if this is the case, it can probably be soldered back into place...

    OP, post detailed picture of this broken connector and that part of logic board where it was mounted. Probably, as written above, it could be soldered back.

    Have not deal with recent iMac, but applies to MacBook Pro.

    Was it connected via a black plastic piece? Those black pieces are designed to come off and snap back together.
