Strange Boxes After Screen Replacement

Block Image

I replaced the screen with an iFixIt part. Those gray boxes in the center are new, and the digitizer doesn't work at all. Put the old screen back and it works as well as it ever did.

Bad part?

Is this a good question?

I already reseated the cables, and swapped back in the old screen. I don't think there's a way to install it wrong.

Contact ifixit support, that is a defective or installed incorrectly part. Try to reseat the cable first and if that doesn't work request a new part.
