This is the broken flat flex cable in the TK-2170. The break is in the red box. The fat trace is the power connection between the main radio's PCB and the On/Off volume control. The end of the cable for the power trace is soldered on the edge of the PCB making the repair a PIA. The cable has to sit at 90 degrees to the PCB making the job very tricky not to get solder on the surface mount parts close to the edge. You can see the solder point. It's the large solder blob at the 90 degree corner on the PCB on the right side in the other photo.
