my daughter dropped her Pearl for about the 10th time and now the display is just white with a few lines running up and down...everything else works as it should but no display...tried a battery pull with no luck...Am I correct in thinking the display is shot and need to be replaced

There are actually a couple of possiblities here... the screen could be damaged, or the connection to the screen could have come loose. First thing I suggest is you DL JL_Cmder and use it to take a screen shot of your BB with your PC - that will tell us if the phone is booting up properly. You can find the link to DL and a primer on how to linked to my blog....
If this is a continuing case, may I suggest the OtterBox case for your daughter:

It is not only a smart-case holster, but it adds an extra layer of protection that will compliment all the others.

Well I did the take apart (piece of cake) tried the tape trick with no luck...guess I will order up a new display off of eBay ($38.00) and give that a go...if that dosnt solve the problem I'll just flip the display on ebay to recoup some $$...for now my daughter is using my old 7290 workhorse...I said go ahead and drop that baby your not gona break it...I hope
Big thanks to all who replied
