Phone won't turn on after I opened it up

Just a little while ago I got very upset and decided to throw my phone to the wood floor kinda hard. It had a little case that just covers the back and thats the part that hit the floor but when I picked it up, only half the screen was working, the other half showing vertical lines. I looked it up and decided to open the phone up because I had a Scanditech kit I used with my iPhone 5 and i opened the 6s up and disconnected and reconnected the cables and now the phone won't even turn back on but it was recognized on iTunes but I can't restore it because "i need to enter the password" but i can't do that as you can probably tell. I need help but I'll end up going to the store tomrorrow to get it fixed at the place I bought it

You probably damaged your LCD when you threw the device. You'll want to pick up a new iPhone 6s LCD and repair it: iPhone 6s LCD Screen and Digitizer

As Mat said, you probably damaged the LCD, But you may have burnt the Backlight Circuit if you did not turn it off or unplug the battery before removing and putting the screen back on.

Check it using a flashlight on the screen while powered up and see if you can see the screen (Faint Image) with the flashlight or if it is entirely black and blank.
