This can be caused by a defective Front Camera & Sensor Flex.

The easiest way to determine if this is the problem is to disconnect it and then try to reboot your device. Follow this guide for disconnecting the flex (you can stop at step 19). If you need to replace the flex, you can find it here.

as i said only the lcd was connected, no camera or digitiser


Oops, I missed that; my bad. Have you checked inside the screw holes of the screen bracket to see if there is any damage to the logic board. This is known as Long Screw Damage. Look here to see some reference pictures.
