Unhappy Display or controller damaged

Hi folks,

today my loved prs-505 got damaged. And yes, it was my fault...somehow i dropped it to the ground
So now i'm facing the following problem:
The reader starts and acts as usually but the display is misplaced. It's moved to the left half of the screen. Or better said: Just the left half of the screen is used for display.

I tried resetting the reader (soft and hard reset) but it didn't help.

Because i'm living in germany i can't just go to the next sony shop. Sending the damaged reader to a friend who is living in USA would be expensive especially if there is no chance to get it repaired for a reasonable price.

So maybe someone of you can tell me from the attached pictures if the E-INK itself is damaged or if it's "only" a controller problem which sony could repair without much trouble.

Thank you in advance,
Michael
