Default xperia z1 black screen of death

Long story short the screen never turns on, theres a tiny bit of backlight though and apps are working in the background. I've tryd updates and so on, nothing fixed it.
So my final resort is to change hardware parts...
The thing that i think the problem is, is a faulty motherboard. Is there any way in particular that i can try to test and make sure that the screen really isnt the problem here?

Power + Volume Up buttons or the Reset button under the flaps, it will shot down, then power on the phone, do you see any image? (Sony logo, bootanimation)

Then the LCD is dead, the backlight working but nothing else, this is 100% hardware failure.

DONATE TO ME
without a bespoke hardware testing kit you won't be able to test the parts, changing a part out would work but then you wouldn't know what to change out. could be a few things, loose flex cable, dead backlight, broken inverter (if phones even have them), Broken motherboard.

The list goes on m8, if you can MHL out of the device and go back to stock then I would do that and send it off for repair.

If thats at all possible.
