Replaced left joystick and now screen doesn't work

I dropped my Switch Lite and the left joystick snapped off.

I was able to connect a Pro Controller until the replacement joysticks came in so I know the unit was working. Bought a 2 pack of replacement sticks. Neither replacement worked and now my screen doesn’t work.

Unit has power. Sound works for all of the buttons & the right stick. Even the left stick makes the boing sound when pushed in but not other sounds up/down, left/right. I only removed the daughter board when replacing the left joystick so I can’t see where/how I could have unplugged the screen.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The screen ribbon cable connects to the daughter board right next to the power button ribbon cable. Make sure it’s properly seated and also inspect for damage.
