Try shining a bright flashlight on the screen to see if there is a dim image. If so, then that means everything is working except for the backlight. Because you tested this screen on another device, that means the problem would likely be with something on the logic board. It could just be debris inside the connector or it could be an issue with the backlight circuit.

Start by inspecting the connector with a magnification lens to see if it is damaged or has debris.
