Looking for a used/broken k30 or k50 for replacement parts

My father recently gave me his K-50 because it had the old aperture problem. I fixed that issue but ripped a ribbon wire when I was putting it back together. I have been desperately looking for someone who has either upgraded or given up on their camera. All I need is the top part that controls the function dial (P, SV, TV, etc.). If anyone has any other suggestions I would really appreciate the input! The camera is totally functional right now (just stuck in Manual) but it is inconvenient to say the least. I also can't delete pictures directly from the camera.

Try You probably need the part number which probably means buying the services parts list from them.
