Phone touchscreen works before pressing it into body

I replaced the phone screen on my iPhone 8 Plus and tested it before placing it into the body of the phone. The phone reacts to touch until it is clicked into the bottom of the phone then immediately looses response to any input.

Any suggestions?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There could be a problem with the ribbon cables when the device is closed, they could possibly be getting pinched when the display is put back in, which would disrupt the touch.

Could be the case. When putting the back metal shield over the screen cables the screen cables should align with the black markings on the metal plate. It should be not going past the marking so that the cable doesnt get squished or put in wrong direction.

After you put in in you said it doesn’t work. If you take it back out will it work again? If yes you’r probably pinching a ribbon cable and just put them is differently. If it doesn’t work anymore you must have broken the screen and you would need to buy a new one.
