I have to agree with this. Replacing a polarizer is easy. An LCD panel.... just forget it. I'm good at it, and it's still an incredibly fiddly job that can take hours to get close to perfect. The original optical "Block", that is the prism assembly with the 3 panels is aligned under a microscope.
Time to let this one pass away.
I've pulled better projectors out of the trash in the meantime, needing only a lamp or... believe it or not.... a LAMP TIMER RESET!
And even then, for $200 you can get some nice LESS used units.
