LCD Display Problem

Dell Inspiron 4000. Five years old. Windows XP home edition O.S.
Having difficulty with display. The picture wobbles and is badly distorted. When I press the back of the display and manipulate it I can get the picture back ? but this is getting harder and harder to do. I have replaced the display flex cable connector, but this makes do difference. The problem seems to be with the display itself. Obviously I need to replace it. But I am in Africa at the moment and cannot do so for some months. I have instructions for removing the Display Assembly, the Assembly Bezel, removing the LCD panel, etc. And have carried out all these operations successfully. But the problem remains. Is there anything further I can to to adjust or repair the display unit. What exactly is ?inside? the unit and what might be causing my problem. I don?t mind trying as I have the use of an alternative desktop monitor. Would be grateful for advice.
