Screen turns on only for few seconds. Even replacement Screen

A friend has an iPhone 6 plus, and she sat on it. The Screen was not broken, but the case was bent, So i opened it, removed the screen, and gently bend the case to its proper position. Put back the screen, and.....nothing appears on the screen, although the phone starts.

I said im no Pro, let it have checked with a local store. They said its the screen, so we bought a new screen,

Installed, and the screen shows an image for a few seconds and turns black. I still not able to figure out under what circumstances the screen turns on. I disconnected it, connected it again, and it came up for a second.

The System itself starts fine, because i could connect with itunes and reset the device.

So did something else break? At the end maybe it was not even the Screen, maybe a Cable loose/broken ?

Besides: Tho home button cable is broken. But that was broken before, and she doesn't want to have it fixed right now., so i doubt it has an effect on the Issue here.

What options do i have ? The next Apple Store is 150 km away. Any cable that could be broken ?

Update (03/21/2018)

- the case has been bent in upper left corner

- the local Store where we had it checked is not an apple store and i doubt he has profound knowledge. But there are no "real" experts closeby. (Costa Rica)

I believe the logic board was damaged during the bend. The weak spot in the 6 Plus housing lines up with the Touch IC's (which causes Touch Disease) but also the backlight and LCD driver circuits. What probably happened is that the solder balls holding those IC's in place were cracked and no longer connecting electrically speaking.

If a replacement screen didn't solve the problem this is pretty much the only other alternative. This will require a micro-soldering repair and is not DIY.
