DMG 01 fixing display

Hi everyone!
Did you know if there is a solution for this kind of problem at the display (not the missing vertical lines)?
Thanks

I try to find on the web without solution...only replacement of the display seems to solve the problem.

I tried fixing one of my DMG with vertical lines by heating it with a soldering iron but I think i've over-heated it and this issue happened. I think its a leak in the LCD due to exposure to heat/sun for long. I don't think it's fixable.

Thanks...
I know, and it's hard to find a replacement...
