What is this cable for?

HP Envy Photo 7855 All in one
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was troubleshooting other issues and a noise when printer started to print and found a crumpled strip that looked like a twist tie on the left side of the interior.  I thought it was some packing material and picked it out, only to find it was really a flat cable.  Ouch!  Its absence has not affected regular printing, but I imagine something will no longer work.  Anyone have any idea what the cable was for and how to reconnect it?  It's a AWM 2896 80C 30V VW1, about 13" long.  Arrrgghhhh....

Hello, Could you attach an picture of for further assistance. The description you have mentioned seems like a flex cable. Have you tried scanning to check if its working fine.

It is scanning just fine.  The ribbon cable is about 3/16" wide.  Here is a link to the item:

Must be for faxing or some attribute of scanning, but not an easy thing to find in any of the manuals.  Maybe parts?  Haven't tried that yet.
