The part you have linked to is just the Digitiser (incidentaly not apparently identical to the TG01) - the resistive matrix pad which sits over the actual LCD and provides the 'touch' x-y grid information to the processor.
A rainbow patch suggests one of three things:
1. a point of pressure which is distorting the LCD screen under the digitiser
2. possibly a crack in the actual glass
3. inward distortion in the digitiser causing it to press against the LCD glass
I'd look closely first to see if you have anything eg. between the battery and the body which might be causing such pressure forwards; then check the digitiser to see if the surface appears bowed inwards and finally examine closely for any crack.
It may be that a new digitiser would solve; but if there is a crack in the LCD glass then I'm afraid only a replacement screen will solve.
Good luck !
