Screen not working after replacement

Hello I have Xperia Z1 Compact with a broken screen. I have ordered a replacement screen from ebay. When I connect the screen to the phone and turn it on, nothing happens. I know that the phone works because I hear boot up sound. Also when I press unlock button and then volume up/down keys I can hear the volume change sound. If we assume that the replacement screen is working, what could be wrong with the phone? Is there anything I could do to fix it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The LCD ribbon cable could have been damaged during installation. Make sure the lcd connector is connected prperly. You might have a defective part, eBay parts are not always the best choice....

Thanks for the answer. Unless the ribbon was already damaged I doubt I damaged it. Connector is easy to access and I was gentle. I was wondering what chances are there that there is something wrong with the phone itself. For example that metal panel below the display (is that heatsink?) seems a bit detached now. Could a connector itself be a bit detached from the board?
