Try a resotre through itunes, if that doesnt work then take it to a genius! if you have a warranty go trade it back if restore dont work

Unless you knew about this damage the seller did deceive you so you would have a chance at winning the dispute.

I would recommend getting it professionally fixed or diagnosed if you lose the dispute since a faded screen could be a number of issues. Do you have Apple store near you?

Looks like the LCD screen to me. Just try a restore first though.

If there is not water damage you need to replace the lcd screen. I have fixed a few of these. (simple)
If there is water damage, you either got water on the lcd or on the logic board. (costly problem)

The LCD Screen could possibly somehow burnt out, first try a restore before you waste money
