my powerbook g4 15" screen is often incapable of displaying the bottom 2/3 of the display. is it at all likely that this is a connection issue or do i probably just need to replace the screen?

i dropped my powerbook g4 15" a while back and the bottom 2/3 of the screen tends to malfunction and turn into a beautiful (but disconcerting) set of colored vertical lines. i'm pretty my screen his having the same problem as described in this thread
I don't have insurance and my warranty is up. is it worth it for me to even bother trying to see if this is a connection problem or should i just go ahead and replace the display? if checking the connection is a worthwhile effort, is it a pretty tangible goal to try and change the LVDS myself (I feel like I'm tech-able enough to be able to replace an LCD myself). Thanks.
p.s. this is screenshot of what my display generally tends to look like when it doesn't feel like cooperating (which is basically everytime i turn it on)
