Same here, I just installed the new screen and no go. Anyone have any ideas what could be going on?


Did you check to see if you have power on the backlight fuse?

I don't know if it's your case but u have to be very specifically when u order a new screen because sometimes the same model have different screens u should look into your old screen number part and see if it's the same as the new one.
