MacBook Pro 13" 2017 A1706 EMC3163 Won't Power on after new screen

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a 2017 13" MacBook Pro A1706 EMC3163 (SN C02WX2P0HV2L) w/ touchbar.

A few weeks ago my daughter closed the lid with something in the hinge and it cracked the bottom of the screen and broke it. The MBP worked fine on an external monitor, but we wanted to use it as a laptop again...

So, I replaced the screen this afternoon (and it went great using the ifixit guide). I was sure to disable AutoBoot as instructed by the guide.

The device powered on and worked like a champ after the repair... for a couple of hours. After it went to "sleep" it became completely unresponsive.

I opened it back up and disconnected the battery cable and tried it on a known-good USB-C charger. I reset the SMC. I let it sit on the charger for a while. I tried an external monitor.

Any other suggestions?

Update (04/07/2022)

Update: the mouse is "clicking" after I hit the power button and not clicking when it's "off off". I can also confirm that the unit powers other devices when it's daisy chained via USB-C.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
