I'd take a look at this first. you may find that a thorough clean and your LCD works again (probably not but it's worth saving the rest of your phone from worse damage over time)

Your back-light is out which might be fixed by replacing the LCD. It could also be related to the logic board which in that case, you're better off getting a new phone. I would start with trying to replace the LCD.
