    You never could buy a ribbon cable.
    Even though you're out of warranty, if you contact Oculus Support, they may still help you. They sometimes offer refurbished HMD's for sale.
    Or just wait for the Rift S and you'll never have the ribbon cable problem again.

    Dear Oculus, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", please.

    The rift is discontinued, the Rift-S will be replacing it at some unspecified time.
    (Unfortunately, there's a gap of unknown length between stopping selling the Rift and starting selling the Rift-S.

    Unless you can get a refurbished one from Oculus, or one from Ebay. Official new rift sales have stopped almost everywhere.
    Although some regions still have some stock left at oculus.com. Australia has some.

    Rift CV1 has gone the way of the Tookie bird.
    RIP Rift CV1.

    Try with support even though you are out of warranty, they might offer a refurb unit for a lower price, that's what they were doing in the past.
