Your back light filter is blown, that is a very difficult repair. You should take it to a local repair shop that can hand that type of repair.

There is an extensive thread on here that details a DIY jumper that can be made to turn your backlight back on--- but I always caution people to really consider just having a professional replace the fuse on the motherboard--it can be done easily and affordably with the right tools. You can find mail-in iPad mini backlight repair service on eBay if your local shop doesn't do it.

Feel free to contact me with more questions-- jessabethany@gmail.com

The error may also be in the IC chip that was used in the replacement. You need to update to the most recent iOS and you also should attempt a new screen. Before sending it off, redo the job, but make sure the Mini is off. Do a soft reset. Do not use metal tools to release any plugs on the inside.
