Replace the other cable, so both the left and right keyboard works now, the only problem is that they are of a different color :)

Hm, interesting. Kilroy had similar keyboard problems and tried to restore traces with metal ink, but didn't fare very well. I suppose wear can happen in different ways. If you're coming to the barbeque on Friday, we can swap one side of controllers if you like, my mismatched pair seems to be fully working and if yours is too now, they could be brought back together again.

Perhaps you should check connectivity in the wires too, like TBCTBC fixed his keyboard by changing cables.
