The reason you may not see anything on the new screen is because apple locked down the screen replacement, so if the computer sees a screen it does not recognize and is not programmed to the logic board it will disable the screen. There is no way that I know of to make it where the screen is programmed to the board, and I doubt apple will do it.

What is the MacOS release on the systems are they different? Apple may have altered the systems firmware during the update process which enabled the sub assembly security feature.
