It sounds like the LCD was damaged during the repair. It can be a challenge to separate the digitizer from the device without damaging the LCD. If a person inserts their tools to far and applies too much pressure to the LCD while trying to remove the digitizer it will usually get damaged, or if the tool is too thick and inserted to far it may also put too much pressure on the LCD. Your description of the screen signals a damaged LCD which will need replaced. Hope this helps.

You are correct they are not glued together, but I was talking about breaking the LCD when trying to remove the digitizer from the device which is held in place with adhesive along the edges.

I wouldn't think that the lcd would be damaged by removing the digitizer. But I can say from experience this week that you can easily break the digitizer while trying to get to the lcd. Heat it well and go slow (especially that left (last) side. Don't try and open it like a book, instead, lift straight up. I'm buying both digitizer and lcd today.
