Tried both of the answers that are listed here with no luck. I have even gone as far as to photograph the socket, thinking that perhaps it got damaged with no luck. Under closer examination both the connector and the socket seem to be fine. Why the difficulty is truly beyond me.

I use two people. One to hold it open and one with smaller hands to insert it. I’ve spent to many hours trying to do them by myself.

first thing you do is start from the bottom panel screen make sure that both end at the bottom is seat properly then slowly push the lcd towards the case where you can reach to connect display connector .

May sure that your case is not moving put a book or something heavy in between the stand and case so when your putting the display it wont move.
