black screen after battery replacement iPhone 7 plus

Hey guys, I replaced the battery in my iphone 7 plus. The phone was working properly before, but the battery life was low, so I decided to try to replace it. I performed the replacement which seemingly went well. Trying to power the phone on doesn't appear to do anything. Connecting a charger and trying to power the phone on the screen stays black. The home button haptic feedback is working, so it would seem that it must have power. I did not disconnect the screen as part of the battery change, and I took the phone back apart a second time to check all connections.

It's recommended to disconnect the screen entirely, for safety reasons.

Did you try flashing a light/angling the screen to see if the back light just blew out? You can barely see the display if you look closely.
