Post replacement LCD dark spots/black

LCD screen broken about 2+ years ago when object fell on back of screen. Replaced it, but there are underpowered dark sections on the bottom of the screen, and occasionally it goes black when opened too far. I have dissassembled it and resecured the screen connection cable multiple times, using different kinds of double sided tape. It will mostly solve the problem for a short time, then it returns.

Here is a photo of the screen.

I would firstly check that both ends of the LCD ribbon cable are properly secured, then secondly would try replacing the LCD ribbon cable.

If still no good, replace the LCD panel.
