LCD Fuse Blown, Any Advice?

So, I have a Macbook Air 11" 2014, and I was a dumb***. The person who has it dropped it and physically damaged the screen, half the screen was covered in LCD destruction mess. So I decided to replace the screen myself. Mistake number one: I plugged in a screen from a 2011 Macbook air 11". It worked, somehow. The LCD on that one was broken too, but it was a start. I grabbed another screen and plugged it in. Powered it on, instant bad smoke smell. The backlight fuse is toast. I know it's the one with the P on it, question is, anyone know the exact model of it? Also I don't have any tools besides a soldering iron... so I am by no means a professional I may take a shot at this.

Here's a picture of it.
