You could always take the housing apart, and vent it, just like drill holes or cut slots. It worked for me. Defiantly was a lot of heat excaping
This is how my screen looks.. its exhausting to look at constantly tilting it back to see different areas. I just dont have the cash to replace it. is there any DIY method to make it a little more readable. It looks like there are tiny cracks in the glass on the front of the screen. Could that be whats causing the color cast?

Did anyone here try this?

There is a flex cable connected to the LCD glass, from the PCB, possibly using some sort of anisotropic conductive adhesive. This seems to lose the connection with the LCD glass over time.
It is possible that it could be reattached with a combination of heat and pressure, but I don't think anyone has come up with a documented/proven method to do so, as in how much heat/pressure/time is required, and how to clamp it for pressure while heating it.
I found this info previously, in relation to how they commonly initially bond flex cable to glass with anisotropic conductive film in other non-MPC applications, no idea if this would be a good starting point in trying to repair a faulty MPC LCD glass to flex cable connection, or not, and whether this is similar adhesive to what is used in the MPC, or not...
