Well the good news is the cable and the logic board connector are in good shape. I don't see any broken pins or other physical damage. I assume you've reseated the connection and it still is not working.
 
The bad news is you can still have a bad display or the logic board is damaged.
 
Can you tell us a bit more on what happened before the display failed. Did the system get a bang or get wet?
 
What does System Report show for the display iunderunder ''Graphics/Displays'' (it may not be listed). Also, I would run diagnostics to see if any errors popped.

At this point I would use a spare display, carefully plugging it in to see if it worked. If it does that cinched it! If not the logic board output switching logic has problems.
