Did the replacement screen you ordered come with the front camera and sensors? If so, then harvest the front camera and sensor from your original, broken screen and install it in the new screen.That should solve your problem. Use this guide.

If the replacement screen did not have the camera and you already transferred yours and it doesn't work, then use the same guide to make sure you installed everything correctly.
