Was replacing battery and made some mess ups.

I replaced the battery in my Pixel 4XL and I had used a pick to pry out the battery while also using a generous amount of isopropyl alcohol. I went down the entire right side of the battery trying to pry the thing out. Then I used a generous amount of isopropyl alcohol to clean the sticker residue. When I replaced the battery I accidentally went through the yellow sticker tab and might have gotten some on the other side of the motherboard.

My phone worked for a while after turning on. It did get warm while charging which was weird. I charged it to full but the screen no longer is working. The phone is on cause I can use voice function and feel the vibration. I removed then reattached the display connecter on the right side but still the screen won't turn on. I am at a loss for what to do. What should I be trying?

Edit:

After having charged it to full and only restarting it a few times to see if the screen was working while trying to repair it, the battery is now at 40%. Could this be right or is there a possibility of a faulty battery causing issues to the screen?

Answer to a question:
There is a yellow pull tab on the battery stickers. I am not sure if I had accidentally pushed through some of the sticker plastic onto the other side of the motherboard but I had taken it out to check and it looks as though I hadn't. I did take all out I could except the battery cause I don't have any additional tape or stickers to keep it in place. I also didn't remove camera lenses, speakers and mic. I did try to reconnect all connectors but so far nothing.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Might of got some what through the yellow sticker? Alcohol? If you put too much alcohol it might of seeped through and into the screen. Make sure as well you haven't torn or damaged any ribbons and remove and reseat all the connections.
