No Airport, Bluetooth or camera after new display install?

I had my macbook pro screen assembly replaced with a used assembly at small computer repair shop. The screen works great, but I do not have internet connectivity via wireless (says no airport card installed) NOR do I have Bluetooth connectivity NOR do I have the isight camera. Is there some kind of software update, driver update or reinstall that I have to do to make these work again?

The old assembly had the vertical colored/black lines running down the screen making use possible only with an external monitor. The airport car, camera and bluetooth worked fine.

The repair shop is more than an hour away - I'd like to fix this on my own.

I wish I had tested these things before leaving the shop.

Thank you

A new display should not affect working hardware. I'd return to the shop and insist they go over the connections... all that hardware had to disconnected to access/replace the LCD. You can use the ID Your Mac link to properly and completely identify your machine to check out the guide from it you can see much of what had to be done.
