HELP with purchase of a LCD for sony hdr-sr7e!

I have a problem with the LCD screen of my sony Hdr SR7E camcorder.
I don't know the exact cause but one day when I opened the screen panel of the camera, it was like as if it has been smashed. The touchscreen (frontside) has no problems because when I touch it it just works. So the problem appears to be with the LCD screen. Here you can see a picture of the LCD panel.
I looked up for a LCD screen on the internet. I managed to find one in
China. The shipping cost to Europe is almost as high as the price of the
item, still I'm ready to accept it. However, what makes me worried is
whether this LCD is going to work on my camcorder or not because the
seller on this website states "Note: without backlight, with touch".
Here is the link to the LCD screen on that website:
So my question is: do you guys think it's a problem if I order this LCD
which the seller states has 'no backlight'? Or perhaps the backlight has
not much to do with LCD and it's supplied by some other equipment in
the screen panel? I would like to have your suggestion on this, please.
Btw, do you guys have any experience with this chinese 'ebay' style
I have one more less important question. does anyone know how to
disassemble the screen panel of these types of cameras? I would really
appreciate if you could briefly explain or provide me a link to video or
something. I found the service manual of this camera on google but it's
really not easy to follow. You can have a look at page 39 of this
service manual. On this page you can see the disassembly of the LCd Panel.
Thank you in advane!!!
