It could be that one of the connectors to the LCD came loose. You could check that first. If it isn't that, to make 100% sure that it is NOT the digitizer (which is located directly beneath the screen), you could hook it up to another working Note 3 and test it. The other possibility could be the motherboard. The motherboard is a little less costly to replace, especially if you were to find a secondhand one. If you DO decide to buy a brand new digitizer, you can find them for about $130-150 if you shop around. I would NOT pay $250!

Sorry to say but the screen is most likely faulty. Sometimes it will have a crack that is very unnoticable on a corner or you need a microscope to even see the crack. A cracked LCD will not allow the screen to display.

Here's a repair guide if you want to replace the screen yourself:

Where to get the screen (Please check model number for correct screen):

Otherwise take it to a mobile phone repair shop for them to test the phone and find out if the screen is faulty or not.
