Where did you buy the new screen from? And are you sure it's for the 5c?

I purchased it from Ifixit. They state it is for the 5c.


It appears to match the old screen when compared side to side. It appears Ifixit will need to send a replacement. I'm a bit disappointed. the installation went so well. I expected a functioning phone when done.


DOA parts do happen from time to time, some even get damaged in transit (during delivery).
