Likely your dad forgot to discharge the phone (hold down power for four second after everything is disconnected) and fried some stuff. Probably the display, maybe the display socket, maybe both. Take the display cables and battery cable off, discharge the phone, test the old display. Do it again, and see if the new one can be salvaged

it will charge when we turn it on but the screen stays black , do you think that's it , i mean we have changed out two screens now


Newer iPhones 6S 6S+ 7 7+ store energy, and if you don't discharge it, it will hurt things. I've had to buy two customer phones, because I wasn't paying attention. There's an outside possibility there's something I'm not considering at the moment, but the likely culprit
