Thanks very much for breaking it down more, really appreciate it. So a couple more questions (of course, sorry.):
The printer is safe to use, right? Not going to zap me at some point unless I take it w/me into the shower.
What’s the best way to cut j4…heat up solder iron and run across, or ? I don’t have experience w/physically modifying PCBs.

1 should be safe , cause printer frame still has a connection to safety ground wire in wall power plug.
2 if you’re looking closer on you display module, you can see what j4 has 2 pads connected with thin line. you just need a sharp knife to cut that thin line between two pads .

Thanks very much - appreciate the additional info!
I’m in the middle of a forced-march print (wife wants seven moving/rotating spice racks ASAP) so as soon as those are done my SV05 has a surgery scheduled.

haha, you are the few people I read that the wife is in support of your 3d printing hobby. Hope the printing would add more love and fun to your life~ Have fun with the 3d printing journey!

@Danabw how pcb surgery was?

I think it came out well…I used a box-cutter (razorblade) and I think I’ve cut it sufficiently.
I did it this morning, and hope to reinstall the display this afternoon and mount it right up against the frame to see if the display becomes scrambled again or not. I will also test zip-tieing the display ribbon cable to the front frame rail, to see if that still causes display corruption. Thanks again for your help, I’ll report back when I have results!
