Talking Save the LCD

Westinghouse lcm-22w2 barely a year old (beutiful monitor)
We setup the monitor in the side window of our company truck to display christmas music videos as we rolled down 5th ave with a live santa in the back. Somehow the monitor worked itself free on a corner and flew out the window to land face down on the street.

After recovering the monitor we looked over the damage, plugged in dvi and power and it worked! for about 2 minutes then blanked out like an overheating issue.

Back at the office, i disasembled the plastic housing, checked over everything only visible problem was ribbon cable that ran from the switches to the LCD was disconnected. Reconnected the ribbon powered on and ran fine for about 30 minutes. then blacked out.

If i reset the power it will power back up fine, for about 2 minutes then shuts down. I have the ac blowing directly on the back of the monitor (minus plastic housing) and it seems to be working fine for 45 minutes plus now.

Any suggestions on where to look for overheating problem?
