No WIFI/Bluetooth after screen replacement.

Just replaced the screen on my 2012 Macbook Pro after breaking the old one.

Display works fine but my Wifi and Bluetooth are no longer working.

Wifi shows as "No Hardware Installed" and Bluetooth as "Not Available"

All cables seem to be in nice and solid.

I've tried resetting NVRAM and SMC, no change.

Any ideas?

Turns out the ribbon cable on the back of the airport board had come loose during removal, didn't think to check as I'd wrongly assumed it was permanently attached to the board!
