iPhone won't turn on after screen replacement

I replaced the glass+digitizer everything went well no problems at all but when i finished in noticed the screen won't turn on. what could go wrong that would cause this?

The lcd had lots of burnt pixels so it may be dead but i don't know if just opening the iphone killed it...

please help

I tried the wall charger and connecting to my computer nothing works

the cables are seated perfectly


i would connect the iphone to the computer and try to put it into dfu mode (click here for a video) - maybe this gives you any sign of life

I just replaced my cracked screen and had the same issue. mac forum suggested to reset the phone (hold down the home button and the power button simultaneously until apple pops up) and it worked like a charm!
