Step 8 could have better pictures and explanation of the clasp...or picture of the clasp. I think it was some white tape looking stuff that I did break. Looking for better instructions elsewhere. I think I just made the situation worse

Screen has a posterized effect.

I already replaced the screen with a new one, but the problem remains..

Any idea what is faulty, and how can I fix it?
