Default Broken Xperia Play

Hello, one month ago my Xperia Play dropped down on floor and my digitizer broke, I didn't have problems with the touch. I was planning to replace the screen but after a reboot my screen gone wild.

I press the power button to power-on the device and after some seconds I get this screen. In 1~ minute the screen goes off and if I press the wake button this image comes back up, something like it booted and it asks the pin. That means my phone is working and the lcd is dead?
Thanks in advance.

It show colors, so i don't think it's broken lcd. It could be damaged lcd flex cable or slider flex cable. Try to open/close slider multiple times and see are there any changes on the screen.

In my case it worked, I changed "slider flex cable" and all OK.
But the touch screen does not work well in the last imaginary division of the screen below and on the left side.
Thank you.

That "fuzzy screen" as they call it is surely caused by the flex cable (I mean the one which connects lcd and other things with MoBo), as it happened to me something like 2 months ago, and I had to replace that cable for the second time.
So you'd better change it, because even if you buy a new screen you won't be able to use it
