    My only question: How does the screen realign the liquid crystal such that it can actually produce the proper color?

    Each pixel has 3 color filters in front of the backlight, electricity applied to the liquid determines it's opacity, and therefore how much of light goes through the color filter. Essentially, the liquid crystal can be controlled as to how much light is let through, and the 3 different color filters allow the pixel to assume a large array of different colors. Calculators use LCD displays, but without a backlight or any color filters, and only have 2 states for the crystal, fully opaque or fully transparent.
