Display panel not turning on (PCB800116 & HSD101PWW1)

by arturaguiar on Sat Jan 02, 2021 12:22 pm

Hello! I purchased this display panel and driver board with a 9VDC 1A power adapter:
https://www.adafruit.com/product/1694
Order number: #2443268-0807921296
Purchased on: December 23, 2020

They arrived a couple of days ago, but I am still unable to get the display to work. No picture is ever displayed, not even the backlight seems to turn on when I power it on as far as I can tell. It's just black. The menu buttons board connected to the driver board does light up in green. Most pictures I saw online of this out there show a red light, but I'm unable to tell what red or green mean here since the provided documents for these devices are unfortunately barebones, and not in a language I can read.

The driver board does have some visible signs of possible damage. There is a trace in particular that is in a worrisome state:

Other pictures of the setup, to make sure I have everything done correctly:

Any ideas of what may be wrong? Could the damage to the trace shown on the first image be responsible for this, or should I be looking elsewhere for the root cause?
