Check the logic board for water damage and clean them with stuff like 99% isophryl alcohol if needed.

Make sure lcd cable is plugged into board well.

Other than that it's most likely the LCD. Have you carefully inspected the screen for cracks?

the screen is cracked a bit on the bottom could that be the problem?

If it's on the glass then it should still display. If there is a crack on the black LCD side then the screen needs to be replaced.

Look in different angles at the screen to see if there are inner cracks on the surface of the LCD (not the outer glass). Samsung screens are more fragile than iPhone screens, if the outer glass is shuttered, it can be replaced or at least you should still be able to use the device. It's most likely a broken LCD and you need to replace the whole screen assembly. Double check the screen connector when you disassemble the device, if it somehow got unplugged, but that's less likely.
