Default Samsung Galaxy mega digitizer replacement question

Hi
I recently dropped my phone which caused the digitizer to stop responding to touches.
Anyways, long story short, i managed to take the lcd and digitizer apart. It was much much harder compared to galaxy s3. I almost gave up half way.
Anyways, if you see the pictures, lcd is completely white but when i just hold the digitzer above it, lcd starts to work fine. Seems like there was a film between lcd and digitizer which made the lcd show real colours..
Have a completely broken the lcd? or is there still hope. Digitizer is obviously cheaper compared to getting a whole lcd. I was hoping to stick it together with loca once i had a new digitizer... Any ideas?

I'm exploring the same question. I've seen the led sold separatly from the lcd. And seen a youtube where someone mistakenly separated them instead of the digitizer from the lcd. Do you have any connection to the digitizer when holding it above ?
