Default My laptop screen shows black as red

After fidling to get rid of the bios password, I opened up the laptop. The screen somehow is all red now. I checked the pins, they are all straight. maybe the connector cable is broken somehow.

Does anybody have any experience with this, or have an answer to fix it?

Some pics provided.

Redness of the screen:

Laptop make/model.

Also, attach a secondary monitor to test if it displays the red color, this will narrow down the troubleshooting to just the screen.

I've checked them they're not loose. the screen was a little red tinted before I started doing anything, I found a bent pin in the connector and straightened it out. during this I touched another pin and it made contact with the previously bent pin which made a short(miniscule spark). After this the entire screen is mostly red.

Not good. Consider getting it checked by a qualified technician. I am not being rude but it's better than risking your Laptop LCD.

If the laptop LCD turns out to ruined, I might be interested in buying the working half from you. Does it have S-Video and VGA outputs?

The LCD/TFT screen is fine, I think I ruined the vga card by shorting two pins.
