I agree with @hawkins24 that you are going to need to replace the screen. Even if there isn't any visible damage, there are delicate connections between the flex cable that goes to the motherboard and the glass that the display circuitry is printed on. It sounds like a section of those connections has come loose and unfortunately there's no way to repair them so the only cure is to replace the screen as Hawkins24 advised.

The repair on your phone is pretty straight-forward; basically you just have to separate the screen from the chassis then glue a replacement back on; that's really about it. Well, there's a speaker you have to take off the old screen and move over, but that's all. Here is iFixit's guide to that repair.
