LVDS cable broken? (See picture)


See the picture:

Is this probably the LVDS cable which is broken or could there be a lot more other (more expensive) defects?

MacBook works fine when I plug it into an external monitor.

Thank you in advanced for your kind answers!

Agree it's the LCD. It's easy to replace without breaking the glass if you have experience.
