It was the video cable. It seemed to be clicked in to the board, but you can give it just a bit more. That's what it needed. BTW, I am having to restore the software now too, oh well at least I didn't brick it!

Best to totally retrace your steps.

Hopefully you have not assembled it completely (but that is too much to hope for)

You most likely have disconnected the display unit or damaged the ribbon cable for it - the only way to find out is to visual inspect it. The connector may just have come off the logic board.

Good Luck
