Welcome to the list, Walt.

The only current source for replacement (at least new versions) eMate ribbon cables is Newton Sales (you’ll have to Google them, as I’m not comfortable posting a direct link to the their site on the list). The replacement cables are not cheap, but apparently they’re fairly well made. I can’t speak directly to their quality from my own experience, since I’ve never had to replace any of the ribbon cables in my eMates.

Frank Gründel posted a review of the replacement cable several years ago:


Another option is to find someone who has a dead eMate that you can salvage the parts from.
