yes i used a wedge to make the backlight connector connect properly, i had to make the connector on the backlight to tilt up slightly . and thats how i broke the connector in the first place

would i have to solder them all or do i have to pick the appropriate 2 pins to solder to the connector?

If you get it in and can hold it there for a minute, use one of the black felt-looking tape pieces that hold the speaker wires to the mother board, to hold the ribbon cable in place.  They pretty sticky.  I use them for just about everything.
