How to fix a display that is black and white lines?

The touchscreen itself works. I can get to games since I memorized where they are on the gamepad screen. The screen will light up, but it only shows black or black and white lines. So I can't do anything in the system that displays on the gamepad itself since I cannot see what is going on.

I bought the wii u and gamepad refurbished about a year ago. The gamepad worked for about two weeks before the lines started showing up. It got progressively worse until there was no display at all pretty quickly. I didn't really care since I can get to Zelda and Netflix without the display, but I changed my Nintendo ID password the other day and now I need to enter it on the wii u which I'm finding impossible without the display.

Here is a link to the ifixit Wii U GamePad LCD Display Replacement guide.

It will help you to dis-assemble the device to first check if the display flex cable is seated properly in its' connector and also if that is not the problem, it shows you how to remove the LCD screen and replace it.

Here is a link showing suppliers of the part. It is not a recommendation to use any of them. It is shown to give an idea of the cost of the part. There may be others that suit you better. Just search for Nintendo Wii U gamepad LCD screen part to get results.
