had the problem with Win 1. GPD told me that the battery was overcharged. this might work

Let the battery drain completely. then give it a day to Fully discharge. Charge it again and screen might work. took me a couple tries and the wait for the power drain was agonizing.

hope that helps, good luck.

Hey there Odellot.  I know this post is getting long in the tooth, but I was interested to know if this trick worked for you? 

It looked to me more like there was a loose cable issue on my screen as for a day or so I could adjust the angle of the screen and the picture would come back.  I have been debating following a tear down and trying to reseat the cabling.

Just in case someone else has this issue.  Mine was definitely a bad flat cable to the screen.  I contacted the seller and they sent me a cable free of charge. 

This teardown helped me a lot:
