My kindle screen broke down. Is it possible to fix it?

Just switched on my Kidnle 4 and saw this. The left side of the screen dosn't get updated with e-ink and stays this way whatever I do. Is it possible to fix it or maybe it is due to some software bug? Thanks.

The internal substrate of the screen is broken. It will probably cost more than the device is worth to replace the screen.

The good news is that you pick these up for about $20 (shipped) on shopgoodwill.com.

Haha, I am in deep Russia, so the shipping will cost me more than the actual device
