the photo quality is horrible but it looks like a physically damaged screen (broken glass substrate) which can not be fixed

The screen is not broken at all, there is a white strap taking half of the page .

It's broken alright. The break is not on the surface (not on the side you see) but inside the display.

Other examples with pictures http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=154223 (especially the pic that shows the back of the display, you can see the cracks in the glass substrate)

Yes, I will confirm that the picture shows a broken screen. Sorry for your loss.

Yes, that's an absolutely classic picture of a broken screen substrate.
