Default Screen not showing image

I've recently ran into an issue where the screen on my dz does not show anything on it. The phone works and responds to touch however it does not show anything on the screen apart from a couple of white lined down the right side. Would this be a screen fault or a connector fault with the ribbon?

It could be either the main flex cable or the LCD, unfortunately there isn't a good way of testing other than replacing pieces to see what cause this. In truth your situation seems to be 50/50 caused by main flex or LCD, but I still am leaning toward replacing the LCD if you don't want to buy both
