How to fix an intermittent display LCD on Canon PowerShot S5IS

The Canon PowerShot S5IS digital cameras feature a tilt-and-swing LCD screen. You can adjust the LCD screen on different angels. But the LCD cable is an easy broken part due to the frequent movements. When the cable is broken, the common symptoms are:  intermittent display, changes to EVF by itself, upside down pictures.
The cable is not a separate part, you need to replace hinge too. They come together with two switches. Figure 1 is the picture o f the hinge.
