For step 5 it said to replace with a new battery. Is that necessary? Will the battery life of the tablet be affected if the battery is taken out and that same battery is placed back?

I was wondering if you could tell me which ribbon cable connects the screen, and in particular the touch input to the main board. I would guess that it is the one labeled 14010-00190900.

I am having the problem with intermittent touch input failure, and since my device is not on warranty, I thought I might try replacing the ribbon cable.
