Wont turn on after lcd replacement

I have changed the lcd and now it won't turn on. the issue is now that it won't turn on again. when connected to iTunes it is recognized as "the phone you are trying to activate needs a sim card to activate. or this item does not exist. When connected to charging cable it vibrates to times with 5 sec. interval.

the repair is not new to me, i have done this repair many times.

i have tried to mount an other lcd with the same result. I can read, that some threats describe the it could be issues with CPU. Does any of you have experience with this issue?

Is this a good question?

The constant vibrate is the phone telling you it can not see a display. Look for a damaged digitizer connector or screw damage down the flex cable retaining bracket screw holes.

Yes. I have tried hard reset several times. And I have tried to boot in dnu mode

Hmm. Sounds like the phone is on and active. It's starting to sound like there's an issue with the sockets on your logic board. You sure your old LCD doesn't work? So we can rule out our new LCD being the issue?
