It is possible that the digitizer is faulty in the new screen or perhaps the connecotr was't properly reconnected to the logic board or it is possible that the connector on the logic board was damaged during the repair.

Disassemble the phone and inspect the connector and cable. Reseat the cable. If that doesn't work try the original screen to see if that still works.
