    There are several possible reasons for the new screen failure. Any of the screen connections could be slightly crooked or not inserted fully into the jack, or the ZIF connector jacks may not be fully closed properly . The ribbons that connect the screen to the jacks on the motherboard could be cracked from bending. The new screen could be defective. Damage could have occurred to the motherboard due to static electricity while handling the phone during the repair. I know this is frustrating but you could try the old display again to see if your new screen could be bad.
