Did you unplug the camera ?

Did you unplug the battery before connecting and disconnecting the the screen? If you didn't you may have damaged the backlight circuit. This requires a micro-soldering repair and is not DIY.

I am curious how a connector could have become disconnected though. All of the screen connectors are supposed to be under a bracket (see linked image), secured by screws. If it wasn't, that means someone previously opened the phone and attempted a repair or something.

While you have the phone open, inspect the connectors on the logic board and look for damage or loose or missing parts surrounding it.
