Dropped - black screen

Dropped while on. What works:

Logo lit

Startup chime

Keyboard backlight ok

Logo stays on when lid is closed. Tried SMC & PRAM re-set. Have not opened it up yet. Please point me to any diagnostics or suggestions. Thank you.

Usually the LCD cable needs reseating if the screen lights up black after a drop, but there is no picture.

Watch the following video up to 8:30 to see how to reconnect the LCD cable screen side, also reconnect the backlight cable next to this too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLNUjeUL...
