Help... Display is messed up.

So I followed this guide on how to boot everything off the Sd-card.

It was a pain in the butt getting the on board sdcard unglued from the board.

After putting everything back together the screen started showing up like this.

I noticed that some of the gold on the display cable was missing, I'm thinking this is causing the display issue but I'm not totally sure. Is there anything I can do to fix the display issue?

Is this a good question?

That is definitely a damaged LCD or LCD cable. I've replaced the Digitizer on a few of these but I cant remember for sure if the LCD cable can be unplugged from the LCD or not. If its attached permanently then you could need to replace the LCD. If its the connector on the motherboard that is damaged then I would say it would be easier to replace the device. You could maybe find the part and re-solder it but it would be a very tiny soldering job.

Hope this helps!
