Ribbon is broken = new keyboard (Or you can get a magnifying glass, find the break and erm.. try and fix it!)

Alternatively look at the end of the ribbon to see if any of the contacts have worn down, if they have get some of that liquid metal and carefully replace the missing part of the contacts.. be careful not to bridge the contacts though!

Try disconnecting teh cable and reconnecting it, this does the trick for me. after along period of not using the 600o this shit happens. it's a shitty cable i tell you :P only way to not letting this happen is never unplugging it, seems like defacto comes well fitted, but as soon as you remove it, it never fits the same again.
