I was researching this a while back. The best I could come up with is some sort of modular cable, similar to an HP-HIL cable, except with 8 pins.

From the Portable PLUS Service Manual:

5.19.3 Video Interface
The HP 82985A Video Interface provides a connection for duplicating the computer display on an
external monitor. The video interface consists of a modified battery door for the computer that connects
to the motherboard PCA in the computer, a video cable that connects to the the battery-door
connector, a separate interface module that connects to the video cable, and a monitor cable that
connects the interface module to a monitor. An ac adapter provides power to the interface module. A
description of the interface and complete service information are contained in the HP 82985A Video
Interface Assembly-Level Service Manual (part number 82985-90003).

Perhaps the service manual provides a part number.

Page 5 of this document gives the part number of the replacement receptacle panel.

After further research, this looks close:

Thanks, for your exacting research and right on the nail head. This PM, I found my ca 12" flat cable. No part numbers were displayed. Yes, eight (8) pins. wires. all the gold (?) plated pins are openly exposed on the underside of each male end receptacle. which has a staggard block tee shape. I got it plugged in to the video interface device and in a matter of seconds was able to stream DATA from my HP110 + on to an HP 82985A 9-inch monitor. (which has been sold and will be sent to Deutschland. Thanks, Dave. Much appreciated !@
