GameCube LCD Screen(Intec GC-5271-C) isn't working, any help would be appreciated!

I bought a GC lot a while ago and it came with these items:

I have no clue what this item about is or what its use for?

Also, the lot came with an Intec LCD GC screen (Intec GC-5271-C)

For some reason I can't get it to turn on anymore. At least before it was just black and white. When I press the power button, it doesn't turn red. I'm not sure if I'm missing a a cord?

And this was the other cord in the box, power source.

Does anyone know how I can get this bad boy to turn on and also get it back to color. I mean it's excellent shape. My 6yr old is dying for me to fix so any help would be much appreciated it.

The first cable is for an original Xbox, it's not used here at all.

As for it not working at all any more, you usually need to plug the power in via a pass-thru power cable, which in your first LCD screen picture looks like GC power goes in and then comes out via another cable. If it was black and white it's possible the screen only supports PAL mode and you're using it on a NTSC console?

How do I find out of the screen is PAL? Not much info at all on it. I'm 99.9% sure my GC is NTSC. I got all this stuff of Craigslist, $60 lot. 2 LCD screen, one works the purple one doesn't. Came with orange controller, indigo one and a Wave Bird. Also had Mario Sunshine left in the console. And some other GC stuff but also odd items likes that XBOX cord you mentioned.
