I hope that things will go as smoothly as expected. The only part of the screen that makes me a trifle leery (quite possibly just damage to the in-panel driver circuitry, which is crazy delicate, quite possibly just the signal connector getting jarred a bit by the fall, and you’ll be disconnecting and reconnecting that anyway), is the upper left corner of the screen, most visible in the lower right picture.
Is that rainbow-stripey area (sophisticated technical term there, people, copybooks open) mostly static or does it ‘shimmer’?
As noted, I don’t have much experience with Sony; but my first tech job was laptop repair/refurb and I’ve seen quite a few since, and the classic bad controller cable (in absence of trauma to the screen) is progressive, degenerative, ‘shimmery’ visual noise, often more pronounced in blocks of certain colors, or in transition areas between colors, as the cable gradually dies from repeated flexing (worse in the classic convertible tablets with the swivel screens, since the cabling had to take worse abuse).
A sudden sharp shock is quite likely to knock a cable assembly loose(it’ll probably be screwed down on the motherboard end of things, and fine there; but just friction-fit on the panel side); but signal cables usually die of prolonged repetitive motion rather than sharp jolts.
Oh, also, while I’m rambling: be sure to open up the dead LCD panel. Pretty much all LCDs have a multi-layer diffuser arrangement to distribute the backlight evenly, and I’ve never seen such seemingly-impossible trippy optical effects as provided by some of the patterned plastic layers in LCD diffusers. At first you think that ‘eh, just a Fresnel lens, how cute.’ Then you realize that it’s some sort of freaky Fresnel-like lens that apparently mocks all sane rules of light transmission. Definitely worth what you pay.
If your taste runs in this direction, shapes cut from those films can be used (alone or with other elements) in any sort of mobile or other hanging-decorative-piece that catches some sunlight. The effects are quite remarkable.
