If your lucky then the connectors may just have come loose and need to be reset, if that doesn't work then the new screen has probably been damaged by the subsequent fall and will need to be replaced.

Usually, when you see lines on your screen, it is because there is dust between the LCD cable and the socket. You should try to blow out any dust and firmly secure the connector. You can try disconnecting all the cables under the cable bracket and reconnect them before taking it back to the repair shop.

If this doesn't help, you should probably go back to the place where you got it fixed and tell them what happened. They should be able to fix that for you and back their service.
