Yes, this guy explains it to some extent in a two-part video:

He first measured all the ceramic SMD capacitors on the long, thin PCB to make sure there wasn't a short circuit on any of them.

He explains that the pins that are masked off on the ribben cable are clock signals on the horizontal plane, and in his case there appeared to be a short circuit in a subpixel on a single horizontal clock line on his panel after he tried reducing the block of masked off pins one by one.
The consequence of the masking is a possibly lower brightness on lines on the panel at the half where the masking is done.
He had to research a patent application to fully understand the technical implementation.
