Yea So i came to the conclusion that I fried the circuit, The screen no longer turns on and another screen doesn't work. The phone itself turns on fine, vibrates all that.. But the screen/touch screen never work.

I believe this happened because every time I changed up parts I never removed the battery connector and now the mother board circuit for the lcd is friend.. Anyone have any suggestions?

no.2 is the digitiser cable. try reseating cable no.1 which is the LCD cable...it needs quite a firm pressure to connect it and makes a pop/click when it's on. sometimes it pops up just as you close the display so keep an eye on it or put a flathead screwdriver on it to hold it down as you close the display

try hard reset..press and hold home and home button for 10 seconds, apple should appear then release buttons and allow to reboot. if that doesn't work.. does vibrate work? if yes then open again (i know this is tedious..) and put connector on again. if no then check all connectors again, make sure battery screw under sticker is in tight enough (not too tight)

It is definatly the #1 ribbon cable that controls the LCD screen. I am still trying to figure out a trick to apply pressure onto it until i close my Iphone or maybe i will permanantly put something small to keep the pressure on the ribbon cable #1.
