you need to check that firstly you have the right part. a 3g screen will not work in a 3gs phone

2nd it is possible that you have broken the lcd or it was faulty

3rd- the backlight may be the problem- in which case take a good look at the pins on connector 1 for dirt and damage, if they are ok then you will need the backlight coil replaced-many online shops are advertising this or you can google it and do it yourself if you feel confident

There is a very small number on the cable- contact ifixit to check they have shipped the right part.

Also check your connectors to the rest of the phone are on properly/ cleaned
