There is a couple different things you can try from here.

First lets do the easy one;

Hold down the power button and the home button at the same time while the iPad is on. Allow it to reset and you will see an apple appear as though it has restarted. Release the buttons and hopefully this will fix your display problems.


Unfortunately you may have to open your iPad if the first fix did not work. Carefully re-open the ipad and ensure that all display cables are seated properly and are not being pinched or coming loose when reattaching the glass. Repeat fix one. I know this is a pain, but if the first and second fixes dont work, we will go on to fix 3.


If none of the above helps, its time to replace your display. =(

Good luck!
