Alright, my laptop fell off my desk causing the screen to crack. It was a Lenovo y510p model laptop. I purchased a new screen and removed the old one. I stupidly left the battery in while changing the screen and the 40 pin connector lit on fire when I tried to plug in the new screen. It seems to have melted. Is there a way to replace the plug?

The safest way to replace the plug will be to replace the full assembly - an expensive lesson in basic safe troubleshooting and repair.
