PS3 fat not spinning disc. Ribbon cable slot faulty?

Hi !

I got a backward compatible PS3, model CECHC, that was not reading disc properly. I tested it, it could read ps2 games but not ps1's.

So I decided to disassemble and clean it. After that it ran better but could not read any disc. Damm I thought I just destroyed something.

So I investigated. The feeding system worked but the disc was not spinning. I tested the lens and it was not shining any light when trying to read a disc.

I thought about a damaged lens and ordered a new one, that unfortunately gave the same result. I dissassembled again and again, tested and retested. Always the same.

Then once I re-assemble the bluray but forgot to plug the ribbon cable that links the bluray drive with the motherboard. And suddenly the lens was working !!!

When I plugged the ribbon cable back, it was doing the same as before, so I guess my connection between the drive and the motherboard is not good.

I noticed some black spot on the pins of the ribbon cable fixation on the motherboard's side, as one can see on the picture.

This does not look like corrosion but I don't know what it is or if it is fixable. I tried to clean it with IPA but no result.

What is this and could I clean it?

The console was pretty dirty so maybe some pieces got glued together with the IPA and got stuck in the ribbon cable fixation I don't know and I will appreciate any help. :)
