Try giving the ipad a good smack on the back side of it. The way that lcd connection is hooked up it can come loose and hitting it can reseat that connector. Let me know if that helps.

If the smacks don't work it will likely need to be opened up and have the lcd cable reseated.

You most likely need to replace the LCD. it's not hard to do if you have experience heating and prying screens, but you do need to be careful not to break it or damage any cables during the removal.
