Battery replaced but screen shows static

I made it all the way through the instructions but when I replaced the screen the screen shows nothing but static like an analog tv with no signal. I know the screen wasn’t damaged during disassembly because I left the phone powered on up until I disconnected the screen and it continued to show my home screen with no errors. Did I do something wrong? Can I fix it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Same issue im having. Right next to the display connector are small line filters. You may have broken one off. I thought my new screen was dead on arrival but did some digging. You can either get a filter from a donor phone or replace the entire motherboard.

I learned that yesterday after watching a couple Youtube videos. I took it in to a repair shop, no way I can attempt this repair myself. He said he could do the repair but it would cost around $150. For that level of cost I decided to upgrade to a new phone. Really wish I would have known about those little modules before disconnecting the screen.
