After replacing digitizer and screen, partially working

I ordered digitizer and glass replacement for Touch 2g from Amazon. After replacement and reassembly the screen showed battery icon when plugged in.

The screen is responsive, mostly. There is a portion of the screen, about a strip 2/3 from the left side, that is a "dead spot". When I swipe the lock it always drops back at that point. I have to swipe it fast several times before it will pass that point and unlock. I am unable to reset the date in the "date and time" because it will not move/scroll, but the month and year are movable and i can change them fine.

Basically, most of the screen works except what seems to be one strip/section.

Q) did i do something wrong during installation? or did i just get a digitizer with a bad section?

Unfortunately, it sounds like you got a bad digitizer. I recommend requesting a replacement.
