Right to Repair

Sorry guy the display got the worse of it here ;-{ While you may have pulled the cable a bit it (and even damaged it as well) it would have given you a very different symptom.

Unlike LVDS signaling iDP is more like your digital TV's signaling. If you ever watch over the air (vs cable) you might have noticed the signal will freeze up or go into a checker board. iDP signaling is very similar to this it wouldn't give you the steady bar.

Sadly it doesn't take much to damage the display when you cut it free. Time for a new display assembly.
