It's a piece of flat ribbon cable.

I had one of those go out in a CD player I had. Finding a replacement, unless you can get one from the manufacturer, is a hopeless idea. They seem to be made just to be used in whatever they're in, every single one of them is different.
I just replaced it by desoldering the connector from each board and replacing it with a bunch of tracer wire. Here's a picture:
This worked for quite some time. However, the hot glue cracked, which allowed the solder joints to be stressed (the cable went to a moving part), and they eventally failed. Perhaps silicone would have been the thing to use.
