LCD dead after housing replacement!

I just replaced my back housing but now the LCD and digitizer won't work! The phone is on because music plays from the headphones.

Any ideas?

Try cleaning connectors 1&2. Check the pins for any damage. Then if still no effect you could try taking board out for 20 minutes or so (seems to rest the board in some cases.. Had this happen with one of mine when LCD wouldn't work) if that doesn't work try restore in iTunes(backup first!) if that doesn't work try new screen

Check your ribbon wires on your iphone to see if any of them broke or unplugged during your installation
