Make sure you installed the screen right. Is the cable attached properly and all the wires connected not bent over?
I found that the ribbon can get damaged very easily and not visibly look damaged and cause this problem. Buy a new screen. You can get one for $15 at http://www.sonicgadgets.com
yes, during my instructable on how to repair the hinge my screen got damaged, even though i never touched the ribbon cable. luckily, my friend had a spare screen lying around

Try charging it. This happened to me on my dsi.
