recheck connector 1-it may have come loose. it is a bit tricky sometimes and pops off when you close the screen

Yeah, connector #1 is pretty funny. I find it helps line up the screen with the phone's internal frame before I plug it in.

Also, it could be that the LCD itself died. It's pretty rare that the images show up without the backlight.
