It's the black connector on the upper left in this photo.
I can give you a macro photo if that's not good enough.
The pins look like those on a small IC, where the leg is an "L" with the
vertical pin going up into the plastic friction-fit connector, and the
short leg flattening out on the end to attach to the copper trace in the
ribbon. There are 12 pins total.
