Received today in described condition.

hopefully I can now fix the lines on the screen and fit the backlight I've had sitting around forever lol.

The lines on the screen is a supa easy fix. Just put some heat over the ribbon cable of the screen using a soldering iron (Do not touch it or give too much heat).

A temp way of fixing the screen is to put the power switch on and use a power adapter and play around with the power connection. The quick on/off/on/off successions seems to give it a temp fix.

Oh I fixed the lines on the screen. I used a hot air station at a cool temp to spread heat across the ribbon as you mentioned :)
