    You may have pinched the ribbon cable. It's a common issue when doing screen replacements.

    You may have to redo that particular part and verify that the connection wasn't pinched. All I do know is that for the majority of screen related issues people tend to get, the major cause is a pinched ribbon cable.

    Ribbon cables are right bit*hes alright - they either get pinched, slide around or aren't in their socket properly. Remove it, check it for damage, put it in again and re-check if it works.
