Sounds like a faulty screen particularly with the backlight behind the screen.

Where did you get the screen from? Because I haven't heard this issue before with replacement screens. If the old screen works just cracked try the old screen again and see if the brightness adjustment works Auto or not.

I got the screen from ifixit.com. Not sure how to go about asking for a replacement screen.

Contact iFixit about the issue with the screen usually thorough a contact us form / email or maybe over the phone they will sort it out for you.

Explain the problem and request that you want to get it replaced under warranty as there is a defect / fault on the screen.

Did you try to put back your old screen like @benjamen50 suggested? If the problem is only with the replacement screen, then go to this page to find out how to return your screen under warranty. The folks here are only volunteers and do not work for or represent iFixit.
