Default Ribbon wheel re-insertion problem (+ replacement recommendations)

So the wheel/buttons won't work after re-assembly...these things are designed awfully if you have to open it up to change the battery or cleaning.

Anyways, can anyone give me any tips? I have gotten the ribbon back in and the player is working but the wheel won't. I think the problem is that the ribbon isn't going in far enough. Does anyone have an idea of the amount it's supposed to go in and is there any way to fix this or some work around if the wheel won't work? Player is fairly useless except for as a USB if the wheel doesn't work.

Also, can someone recommend me a replacement? I don't wanna get a Sansa Fuze again obviously due to fragility, poor batter life, lack of button responsiveness, etc. Preferrably a player with a wheel and at least 8 gigs plus an SD card along with the small size. I actually have the Sansa View and quite like it but it's not very small and obviously old. Also, any shop or eBay store which would be a good place to buy from?
