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.
