Reseat the screen cables well. It's a connection issue. Make sure they click in.

This sounds like the ribbon cables for the screen aren't seated properly.

Your solution will be to take off the assembly again, disconnect the ribbon cables and reseat them. Making sure everything 'clicks' into place.
