Backlight turns on, screen won't

After replacing the digitizer and LCD the screen won't turn on. The screen will turn white, and I can actually still receive calls, but no display besides white when using, and black when off. Any suggestions?

I know the LCD/digitizer both work as I'd put it together and had it work fine. However the connection (2?, the horizontal one) is a bit loose, the screen flickered and I opened it up again to make sure it was connected properly.

Recheck no1- the LCD. It can be a bit tricky to "pop" on, and sometimes pops off as you close display.

You could also try pressing and holding the home and power buttons for 10 seconds.... Then allow to reboot.

No2 is the touch screen.3 is earpiece and proximity
